MQ Authenticate User Security Exit Overview

The MQ Authenticate User Security Exit v2.1.0 is a solution that allows a company to fully authenticate a user who is accessing a WebSphere MQ resource. It authenticates the user's UserID and Password (and possibly Domain Name) against the server's native OS system, LDAP server, Microsoft's Active Directory, Quest Authentication Services, Centrify's DirectControl or an encrypted MQAUSX FBA file.

The security exit will operate with WebSphere MQ v6.0, v7.0, v7.1, v7.5 and v8.0 in Windows, IBM i (OS/400), Unix and Linux environments. It works with Server Connection, Client Connection, Sender, Receiver, Server, Requestor, Cluster-Sender and Cluster-Receiver channels of WebSphere MQ queue manager.

The MQ Authenticate User Security Exit solution is comprised of 2 components: client-side security exit and server-side security exit.

    MQAUSX is 3 products in 1:
  1. If the client application is configured with the client-side security exit then the user credentials are encrypted and sent to the remote queue manager. This is the best level of security.
  2. If the client application is not configured with the client-side security exit then the user credentials are sent in plain text to the remote queue manager. This feature is available for Java/JMS, Java and C# DotNet client applications. For native applications (i.e. C/C++), then the application must use and populate the MQCSP structure with the UserID and Password.
  3. If the MQAdmin sets the MQAUSX IniFile parameter NoAuth to Y then it functions just like MQSSX. MQSSX does not authenticate. It filters the incoming connection based on UserID, IP address and/or SSL DN.
