Artemis' Rest Interface Authentication


I've the Artemis (2.3) running with the embedded Jetty server. The server is
using JAAS authentication. I've also deployed a rest.war as described in the

I understand that security must be handled by the war itself (e.g.
ServletFilter) as no credentials passed with a request are forwarded to the
artemis server. In fact all calls to the server within the provided rest.jar
are without any authentication information which lets my server to refuse
all requests. My rest.war is configured to use the InVM transport to connect
to the server. I know I can change it to use netty transport but even then I
see no way to pass any credentials along with the call.

So how is rest supposed to work exactly?

Thanks for any clarification!
