Hi,

I am looking on how to best describe the access to a JMX administration page like http://localhost:8080/jmx-console for JBoss in a secure way.

Here, Java EE's security model plays in. For JBoss it's clear to me but I wonder whether there is a more general approach in Java EE.

Any hints?

Regards,
Darya

Are you asking how to secure a web application (the JMX-console) or how JMX security works?

I think most of the security task here is vendor dependent. The only non vendor dependent part I can see is in the web.xml deployment descriptor, see the code snippet below:



Here I want plug my own security domain and use my own security role my:jmxconsole

So you are asking about securing a web application. Well since this is a more general "how web apps work" type of question so I'll move you over to a more appropriate forum, see if that generates some discussion.

I agree.
I'm going to move this again.
This time to our JBoss forum where you find help in setting up SSL on that server.
