Overview - HTTP Authenticators
Authenticators are used to identify users. Most authenticators call out to pipes to perform the actual execution of password validation, data access, manipulation etc.
HTTP authenticators are called upon using the URI <base_URI>/authenticate/<authenticator_alias>.
PhenixID Server currently ships with two types of http authenticators:
- Protecting PhenixID web apps (Configuration Manager, Self Service, MFA Admin and MyApps)
- Protecting external web applications using federation (SAML2)
Applications that do not support SAML2 can use the PhenixID HTTP Authentication API for integration.
