Authentication Validator Use-Cases

Effective Use-Case Scenarios

  • When you have users holding an account on your business server.
  • When you need to know who is using your app (hence the username/password parameters).
  • Two-way chat applications where both users will have a pair of credentials.

Ineffective Use-Case Scenarios

  • When you need anonymous usage of your application (no fixed credentials for users).
  • One-to-many applications (one broadcaster => N subscribers), where you need to distinguish between publishers and subscribers.
