Sending a clear text secret is not secure the extreme

Sending a clear text secret is not secure. The eXtreme Scale security infrastructure provides a SecureTokenManager plug-in to allow the server to secure this secret before sending it. You can choose how you implement the secure operation. WebSphere eXtreme Scale provides an implementation, in which the secure operation is implemented to encrypt and sign the secret. Java Management Extensions (JMX) security in a dynamic deployment topology JMX MBean security is supported in all versions of eXtreme Scale. Clients of catalog server MBeans and container server MBeans can be authenticated, and 50 IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale: Administration Guide April 2012

access to MBean operations can be enforced. Local eXtreme Scale security Local eXtreme Scale security is different from the distributed eXtreme Scale model because the application directly instantiates and uses an ObjectGrid instance. Your application and eXtreme Scale instances are in the same Java virtual machine (JVM). Because no client-server concept exists in this model, authentication is not supported. Your applications must manage their own authentication, and then pass the authenticated Subject object to the eXtreme Scale. However, the authorization mechanism that is used for the local eXtreme Scale programming model is the same as what is used for the client-server model. Configuration and programming For more information about configuring and programming for security, see “Security integration with external providers” on page 503 and Security API. Planning for installation Before you install the product, you must consider software and hardware requirements and Java environment settings. Hardware and software requirements Browse an overview of hardware and operating system requirements. Although you are not required to use a specific level of hardware or operating system for WebSphere eXtreme Scale, formally supported hardware and software options are available on the Systems Requirements page of the product support site. If a conflict exists between the information center and the System Requirements page, the information at the website takes precedence. Prerequisite information in the information center is provided as a convenience only. See the System Requirements page for the official set of hardware and software requirements. You are not required to install and deploy eXtreme Scale on a specific level of operating system. Each Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE) and Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE ) installation requires different operating system levels or fixes. You can install and deploy the product in Java EE and Java SE environments. You can also bundle the client component with Java EE applications directly without integrating with WebSphere Application Server. WebSphere eXtreme Scale supportsJava SE 5 or later and WebSphere Application Server Version 6.1 and later.
