2.6. Configure the Security Subsystem

You can configure the security subsystem using the Management CLI or web-based Management Console.
Each top-level element within the security subsystem contains information about a different aspect of the security configuration. Refer to Section 2.2, “About the Structure of the Security Subsystem” for an example of security subsystem configuration.
<security-management>
This section overrides high-level behaviors of the security subsystem. Each setting is optional. It is unusual to change any of these settings except for deep copy subject mode.

Specifies whether to copy or link to security tokens, for additional thread safety.
authentication-manager-class-name
Specifies an alternate AuthenticationManager implementation class name to use.
authorization-manager-class-name

<security-domains>

A security domain may contain information about authentication, authorization, mapping, and auditing modules, as well as JASPI authentication and JSSE configuration. Your application would specify a security domain to manage its security information.
