18.9. Security Context

The SecurityContext is an object which is created after a security certificate is confirmed. After creation, it will be configured so that you do not have to re-authenticate the certificate every time you perform an action related to it. If the ESB detects that a message has a SecurityContext, it will check that it is still valid and, if so, it does not try to re-authenticate it. (Note that the SecurityContext is only valid for a single Enterprise Service Bus node. If the message is routed to a different ESB node, it will have to be re-authenticated.)
