If I've understood your use case correctly (above questions), then I can think of a couple of approaches. One that I've done myself is to have some other OSGi service for storing/retrieving the association between the clientID and the username/pw/auth info. Then you could store that association away upon connect/disconnect (or at some other point in the protocol...e.g. if you have some other login service), and then look it up/check it in response to a remote call. There is a way with existing API to get the clientID/fromID for every remote call.
That might be a way. But then I need some API to get the clientID of the "current" caller to find the authentication information that got stored on login....

The IRemoteServiceCallPolicy interface has the clientID that is the 'containerID of the remote caller', so it is passed to those that implement that interface.
That would work for me and I will implement a small service that does the resolving to the current user.
