How to authenticate new thread for accessing EJB?
When a request object is created it gets security credentials based on how user is logged in. It is possible to access EJB�s in that thread
However if a new thread is created, it does not inherit security credentials from request thread.
Is there any way, how to create new working Thread, which inherits security credentials of current request thread?

You will have to a JAAS login from the thread to access that secure bean. However why are creating/using a Thread to access a bean? Providing more details about your usecase will let us help you better
