User authentication

An Adobe Access request can contain an authentication token.

If username/password authentication was used, the request may contain an AuthenticationToken generated by the AuthenticationHandler. To access and verify the token, use RequestMessageBase.getAuthenticationToken(). To initiate a username/password request on the client, use the DRMManager.authenticate() ActionScript or iOS API.

If the client and server are using a custom authentication mechanism, the client obtains an authentication token through some other channel and sets the custom authentication token using the DRMManager.setAuthenticationToken ActionScript 3.0 API. Use RequestMessageBase.getRawAuthenticationToken() to get the custom authentication token. The server implementation is responsible for determining whether the custom authentication token is valid.
