HTTP authentication key for hand shake at receiver side for HTTP POST

Hi All,

HTTP post receiver system is expecting an authentication key to be send by PI HTTP_AAE adapter while posting XML message to them.

The receiver system has a utility program in JAVA to validate this key. Has anyone done this kind of scenario in PI 7.31/7.4

How does this simple authentication mechanism works? If this doesn't work, we have to rely on just uname/pwd but that is not really recommended for our landscape because of security concerns. So the key is the only better option as of now. Please help!!

thx

mike

Attached some import packages used in the java util program in the receiver system. forĀ  validating the authentication key send by PI

import java.security.MessageDigest;

import java.util.Calendar;

import java.security.NoSuchAlgorithmException;

import java.io.UnsupportedEncodingException;

import java.io.IOException;

import sun.misc.BASE64Encoder;

import sun.misc.BASE64Decoder;

I am not pasting the java program utility here due to proprietary reasons. thx for understanding
