Security Extensions

This section documents several extensions made to the security mechanisms and APIs that are provided by Payara Server.

Payara Platform Enterprise also provides the link:{enterpriseDocsPageRootUrl}/Technical Documentation/Payara Server Documentation/Public API/yubikey.html[Yubikey Authentication Mechanism] feature. This allows authentication through a hardware device. This type of authentication removes some need of using credentials and requires authenticating using a physical token in a very secure way.
