BCS authenticating with oData source RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I currently have an oData source that we will be using to have an app connect to our service and retrieve data via External Content Types/External Lists.  I'm using the Sharepoint 2013 Online Dev Preview, right now there is no authentication at all.  I'm wonder how can I go about accomplishing this.

    I would be interested in two parts actually:

    1.  The app itself will authenticate and get verified by our services.  This would be the same no matter the user in that sharepoint environment.

    2.  We would also like to be able to determine who the individual user it is connecting to us.  This would allow us to more finely cater the experience and data to that particular user.

    Thanks for the help,

    Matt
