Hi all, good day.
I had a simple running system using Eclipse Scout - Photon, the system verify the user's credential by accessing the database and get the user's password from the specific table base on the provided username. I am using the database admin credentials to access (login) to the database, here's the problem: I want to use the user's credential to access to the database, or should i say i want to use the user's credential to create connection to the database. So that, in this way i can create two layers of security by (i) the user credential must be registered or belong to a certain role of database and that role is allowed to login to the database, (ii) when that credential passes the first layer then (ii) the credential will be verified again (second layer of security) using the specific table (user's credential table) of the database. In these way, i can increase security measures. By the way, i am using PostgreSQL.
I would be much happy and glad if you guys can give me a hand on how to do it.

Thank you so much in advance.

Hi Mark

If I understand your scenario right, this means that for the first security layer (to check if the user is registered and belongs to a certain role in the database) you already need to connect to the database, right?
This means on the other hand that you must connect to the database with any untrusted and unverified credentials to check if the user exists and has that particular role. I am right or did I misunderstand your scenario?
Anyway I would not recommend to configure a database to accept connections for all credentials.

Please feel free to correct me if I misunderstood your scenario or question.

Kind regards
