HTTP authentication key for hand shake at receiver side for HTTP POST

Hi All,

HTTP post receiver system is expecting an authentication key to be send by PI HTTP_AAE adapter while posting XML message to them.

The receiver system has a utility program in JAVA to validate this key. Has anyone done this kind of scenario in PI 7.31/7.4

How does this simple authentication mechanism works? If this doesn't work, we have to rely on just uname/pwd but that is not really recommended for our landscape because of security concerns. So the key is the only better option as of now. Please help!!

thx

mike

Attached some import packages used in the java util program in the receiver system. for validating the authentication key send by PI

import java.security.MessageDigest;

import java.util.Calendar;

import java.security.NoSuchAlgorithmException;

import java.io.UnsupportedEncodingException;

import java.io.IOException;

import sun.misc.BASE64Encoder;

import sun.misc.BASE64Decoder;

I am not pasting the java program utility here due to proprietary reasons. thx for understanding

    I am going to rephrase this question according to my exact need to make it more readable

    How do I send a value from message mapping to a post parameter in HTTP receiver adapter? In this case, its a secure key which has to be passed as one of the post parameters. I saw the blog by William Li Dynamic Configuration of Some Communication Channel Parameters using Message Mapping

    but this is on header field. I need on one of the query parameters.

    thx

    mike
