org.ietf.jgss.GSSCredential interface in
J2SE Version 1.4, which provides similar functionality.
public interface GenericCredential
defines a security mechanism independent interface for accessing
security credential of a resource principal.
GenericCredential interface provides a Java
wrapper over an underlying mechanism specific representation of
a security credential. For example, the
interface can be used to wrap Kerberos credentials.
The connector architecture does not define any standard format and requirements for security mechanism specific credentials. For example, a security credential wrapped by a GenericCredential interface can have a native representation specific to an operating system.
The GenericCredential interface enables a resource adapter to extract information about a security credential. The resource adapter can then manage EIS sign-on for a resource principal by either:
|Modifier and Type
|Method and Description
Tests if this GenericCredential instance refers to the same entity as the supplied object.
Gets security data for a specific security mechanism represented by the GenericCredential.
Returns the mechanism type for the GenericCredential instance.
Returns the name of the resource principal associated with a GenericCredential instance.
Returns the hash code for this GenericCredential
byte getCredentialData() throws SecurityException
The getCredentialData method returns the credential representation as an array of bytes. Note that the connector architecture does not define any standard format for the returned credential data.
SecurityException - Failed operation due to security related
boolean equals(Object another)
