Solve Security issue user creditionals management console on ITX version 10

When you configure the management console on a Linux host (probably also on Windows) to connect to a launcher, You are required to configure the network connection to the launcher and the username and password to logon.

This configuration is stored on a general location ($DTX_HOME_DIR/mgmtconsole.bin) and will be used by every user who wanted to use the management console on that host.

The action is to prevent users from using the same creditionals!

To resolve this, you must currently install the runtime and monitoring software for each user at a new location and ensure that other users cannot use it. I don't think this is the solution to implement authentication and authorisation.

Can you create a better solution? For example use a webgui, where you have to logon using LDAP(S) for authentication and autorisation.

What is your industry? Government
How will this idea be used?
