Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v2.1.1 Administration Guide

Configuring Other Security Facilities

The Enterprise Server implements message security using message security providers integrated in its SOAP processing layer. The message security providers depend on other security facilities of Enterprise Server.

  1. If using a version of the Java SDK prior to version 1.5.0, and using encryption technology, configure a JCE provider.

  2. Configuring a JCE provider is discussed in Configuring a JCE Provider.

  3. If using a username token, configure a user database, if necessary. When using a username/password token, an appropriate realm must be configured and an appropriate user database must be configured for the realm.

  4. Manage certificates and private keys, if necessary.

After You Finish

Once the facilities of the Enterprise Server are configured for use by message security providers, then the providers installed with the Enterprise Server may be enabled as described in Enabling Providers for Message Security.
