Authenticating new sessions

A client session can use the AuthenticationControl feature to authenticate other client sessions.

Registering a control authentication handler

Required permissions: authenticate, register_handler

A client can register an authentication handler that can be called when a client connects to Diffusion™ Cloud or changes the principal and credentials it is connected with.

The authentication handler can decide whether a client's authentication request is allowed or denied, or the authentication handler can abstain from the decision, in which case the next configured authentication handler is called.

A client can propose session properties when it connects. If the authentication handler allows a client's authentication request, it can choose to set the proposed properties.

The authentication handler can set any user-defined session property, and some fixed session properties, such as the $Roles session property.

For more information about authentication and role-based security, see Authentication.
