Spring Security Bridge
Spring Security is one of the most mature and widely used Spring projects. This section provides a short introduction to Spring Security, and describes the GigaSpaces Spring-based security bridge, which leverages our custom security support. The implementation class
org.openspaces.security.spring.SpringSecurityManager is open source as part of the OpenSpaces distribution.
This section also discusses two of the most commonly used authentication providers, database-oriented authentication and Lightweight Data Access Protocol (LDAP). For each option, we provide a Spring XML security configuration, and explain how GigaSpaces-granted authorities should be stored.
