Yes, i'm talking about securing REST endpoints. I saw the
The problem is how to conditionally authenticate requests using a custom
authentication method that does not rely on keycloak users, roles, clients
etc. Would a custom MyCustomRequestAuthenticator do the job? Are there any
examples on that? Ideally, an authenticator running inside the adapter that
would compare against values in the application database wound to the job.
The idea is to be compatible with an old security scheme that relies on API
Keys stored in the application database. So i imagined some sort of dual
authentication for the REST endpoints.
