public interface ClientAuthModule
A ClientAuthModule secures request messages, and validates received response messages.
A module implementation should assume it may be used to secure different requests as different clients. A module should also assume it may be used concurrently by multiple callers. It is the module implementation's responsibility to properly save and restore any state as necessary. A module that does not need to do so may remain completely stateless.
Every implementation of the interface must provide a public zero argument contructor.
Get the one or more Class objects representing the message types supported by the module.
Initialize this module with request and response message policies to enforce, a CallbackHandler, and any module-specific configuration properties.
