11.9.3. Supported Authentication Schemes

Role-Based Access Control works with the standard authentication providers that are included with JBoss EAP 6.3. The standard authentication providers are: username/password, client certificate, and local user.

Users are authenticated using a username and password combination which is verified against either the file, or an LDAP server.
Client Certificate

Using the Trust Store.
Local User authenticates automatically as Local User if the server that is running on the same machine. By default Local User is a member of the SuperUser group.
Regardless of which provider is used, JBoss EAP is responsible for the assignment of roles to users. However when authenticating with the file or an LDAP server, those systems can supply user group information. This information can also be used by JBoss EAP to assign roles to users.
