Set RequireGSSAuth to True to enable GSSAPI authentication mode on the IDOL Content Component index port. In this mode, all connections to the index port must be authenticated using GSSAPI and the Negotiate HTTP authentication mechanism.

To use GSSAPI authentication, you must also set GSSServiceName in the [Server] section, to define the GSSAPI service name that IDOL Content Component must use to identify itself.


This method provides an authentication requirement only. HPE recommends that you use it in conjunction with TLS/SSL to encrypt the authentication data.
