Two approaches for service security are used in Talend ESB Service Activity Monitoring REST service: Basic and SAML.
Basic scenario is a security scenario which is based on Username and Password credentials which is adding as HTTP header to the request:
Authorization: Basic a2FyYWY6a2FyYWY=
The verification on the service endpoint side uses a JAAS filter to check and verify the provided credentials.
SAML scenario is a security scenario which is based on a SAML token requested from the Security Token Service service which is adding to request, as an HTTP header:
Authorization: SAML a2FyYWYa2FyYWY6a2FyYWYa2FyYWY6a2FyYWY=
The verification on the service endpoint side uses the validation of SAML token.
