Configure an NTLM authentication profile so that messages sent to and from your application use NT LAN Manager credentials.
- Configuring an OAuth 2.0 authentication profile
Configure an OAuth 2.0 authentication profile to secure messages that your application sends and receives, by using an OAuth 2.0 token-based authorization process. You define OAuth 2.0 authentication profiles for Pega Platform to securely access external REST service APIs with access tokens.
