Password less and password based authentication

Problem: We have trading partners using one CDNode that may have a
CDProcess using either snodeid=(id,password) or snodeid=(id) or no
snodeID. When a snodeid=(id,password) is sent, we use SEAS going
to a Directory Server. The backend server is B2Bi and we would like
to use a single adapter that can use a CD Policy that can handle each
case for an incoming node.

Resolution: I believe the SFTP Policy is a good example of how this can
be done. With SFTP, you can use "PASSWORD or KEY", In CD, I
would like to have something that can do the same like interpretation
when a process is submitted and use either "EA or PassThru" or allow
EA to not require a password. The first option will allow a incoming
connection touse SEAS or fallback to CD Native and passthru
Authentication that does not require a snodeid and password but it could
just have a snodeid only. The second option may allow SEAS to control
this behavior in some way.
