By-BusObject authentication methods

asked 2014-10-16 10:17:14 -0700

hi guys!

We would like to register two busObjects with different authentication methods on the same bus Attachment. Does the AllJoyn Framework support this scenario? If yes, how?

Help is appreciated Thank you!

In the current authentication scheme once a remote application is trusted it is trusted for all BusObjects. In the Security 1.0 design (what is currently in the software as of 14.06a and previous), there is a trust relationship for authentication of the entire BusObject Tree, not individual BusObjects. So if you have multiple Auth Schemes setup, then a device/app that wishes to authenticate can use either mechanism and have access to the entire BusObject Tree.

This design is changing though in the Security 2.0 model that is under the Core Workgroup. If you are interested in this please sign up to this workgroup mailing list and/or participate in the discussions as they happen.
