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 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.
