Disabling the Basic Authentication Identity of a Broker Server
Broker supports basic authentication to authenticate Broker clients by using the user name and password. You can include basic authentication users in an ACL to control access to the protected Broker objects.
Use basic authentication to secure Broker Servers, remote Brokers in a territory or a cluster, and remote Brokers in a territory gateway or a cluster gateway.
Broker Server supports caching of authenticated users. When authentication information stored in a user directory becomes unavailable, the cached authentication information is used. The cached authentication information in the Broker Server is lost when the Broker Server is restarted.
