I'm trying to implement key authentication in geoserver 2.3.3.
The steps I followed are:
- Added the authkey plugin
- Created the authkey filter
- Secured the layers by assigning workspaces to different users
- Added authkey filter to the filter chain
I'm passing the authkey(obtained from authkey.properties file) as a parameter along with the request while accessing the layers from the client side of my application. But still the authentication does'nt work and the layer's are inaccessible.
Is there anything that I'm missing out or anything wrong with my procedure.
Kindly help me with this.
