Class ExternalAuthenticationMechanism

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class ExternalAuthenticationMechanism
    extends Object
    implements AuthenticationMechanism
    Authentication mechanism that uses an externally provided principal. WARNING: This method performs no verification. It must only be used if there is no way for an end user to modify the principal, for example if Undertow is behind a front end server that is responsible for authentication.
