Detailed Description

Specifies the mechanism to obtain credentials for a client.

It is mandantory for clients when the server is running in secure mode having a security-client-authenticator module specified. Implementations should register the library path as security-client-auth-library system property and factory function (a zero argument function returning pointer to an AuthInitialize object) as the security-client-auth-factory system property.

For a managed class implementing IAuthInitialize the fully qualified name of the factory function should be provided in the form {Namespace}.{Class Name}.{Method Name} as the security-client-auth-factory property.
