In a distributed computing environment, a token is issued to a remote user if a security mechanism initially can determine that the remote user is who he claims to be. Thereafter, a connection between a remote user and an application server requires the application server to first verify that a token associated with a connection request was issued by the security mechanism. If no token is associated with a connection request, or if any token associated with the request was not issued by the security mechanism, the connection is refused.
