> {{AuthInitializer}} is the interface that a client must implement that 
> provides credentials that are verified by the server. The same interface is 
> also used for peer authentication. 
> In order to configure {{AuthInitialize}} any Geode property starting with 
> {{security-}} is passed through to the {{AuthInitialize.getCredentials}} 
> method.
> For simple authentication where only a username and a password are required, 
> users should not really be required to implement the AuthInitialize interface 
> in the presence of property passthrough. 
> Geode should detect {{security-username}} and {{security-password}} 
> properties in gemfire.security OR gfsecurity.properties file and use those 
> for authentication.
