This section describes a simple secure admin use case.
In the asadmin --secure=false --user me --passwordfile myFile.txt cmd ... use case, the user submits a command with --secure set to false, and supplies password credentials.
The important concept to note is that asadmin uses HTTPS because of the DAS redirection, even though the command sets --secure to false. asadmin sends the HTTP Authorization header along with the redirected request.
In addition to the flow described here, certificate authentication is also performed as described in Table 5-3. Also, the credentials that the user supplies are assumed to be valid administrator credentials for the DAS.
