proxyLogin

When performing a secure search on a federation endpoint, the federation broker must transmit the identity of the user to the federation endpoint. If the endpoint instance trusts the broker instance, then the broker instance can proxy as the end user. To establish this trust relationship, Oracle SES instances exchange a secret. This secret is exchanged in the form of a trusted entity.

A trusted entity consists of two values: an entity name and an entity password. Each Oracle SES instance can have one or more trusted entities that it can use to participate in secure federated search. A federated trusted entity is also referred to as a proxy user or a proxy log-in.
