I’m looking for how to deal authentication to the MWS by checking user certificate ? the goal for my customer is to allow certain kind of user to use their certificates in addition or completly instead of login/password.
Maybe someone have already implement sush requirement !
Thank you in advance.
I believe the “Administering My webMethods Server” documentation describes this procedure.
Hi Eric, I’m not sure. what I found in this document says :
“As My webMethods Administrator you can manage authentication certificates for users who connect to Integration Server or other webMethods applications. Authentication certificates do not govern a connection between a user and My webMethods Server.”
You may be right about that.
If you would like that capability provided out of the box then you can make a proposal in brainstorm @ https://empower.softwareag.com/Products/FeatureRequestsInBrainstorm/default.asp for consideration in a future release.
In the mean time, MWS authentication is completely pluggable, so you could create a custom authentication handler that could probably do that. I believe there was source code for an auth handler floating around somewhere which authenticates against X509 certificates but I can’t find it at the moment. If you open a support ticket, then they can probably track that sample down for you.
UPDATE: I found the sample I was thing of on the community site @ [url]http://techcommunity.softwareag.com/ecosystem/communities/public/webmethods/products/bpm_suite/codesamples/8426c89b-b1d2-11e4-8d00-cd8d7ef22065/?title=Certificate+authentication+with+MWS[/url]
Thank you for your feedback. i would have more information about this kind of handler and especialy how to read user certificate while login operation
