Overview


The deployment receiver authenticator provides authentication services for the Deployment Receiver Engine and all of the deployment targets (AVM Deployment Target, DM Deployment Target, and File System Deployment Target.) In general, the Deployment Receiver Engine only uses authentication information to authorize a remote shutdown, but the individual deployment targets use it to authorize a deployment.

Alfresco packages two implementations of a deployment receiver authenticator.  The simple authenticator is configured with a single username and password when the server is set up. The alternative implementation (which cannot be used in stand alone mode) passes the username and password to the Alfresco authentication service, allowing any recognized user to successfully authenticate.
