    Security breach in Header Authentication ?

    rohit kumar

      Hello Techies,


      I am trying to implement header authentication and I read that it is like back-door into your system

      Security breach in Header Authentication ?



      Make sure to only use it under the following circumstances:

      Use only between systems that can fully trust each other.

      Use only in combination with a firewall, proxy or routing solution.

      Use only in a development environment.


      I already have one default proxy which has TICKET BASED AUTHENTICATION SYSTEM  with Windows Active directory as user identity management system.

      Now I am trying to use HEADER AUTH for such users which can't be part of my local windows active directory ?


      Can you please help me to understand is there any way to breach Qlik security in header authentication, consequences , side affects as few conditions are strictly defined on Qlik help page ?
