PREREQUISITES FOR SETTING UP AUTHENTICATION

The round trip authentication consists of three components mainly:

  1. the simple-auth-plugin jar,
  2. the validator instantiation in the webapp's red5-web.xml file, and
  3. the remote authentication service.

You need to have the authentication service running for the system to work. A sample of the authentication server implementation, mock Node.js service, can be downloaded here. Once the server is available you can configure necessary endpoint parameters as explained in the next section.

Make sure to double-check your server endpoints for errors and expected responses before you configure it on your instance.
