make authCache distributed within a Collective or a predefined set of servers

After migrating from WAS ND Classic with use of TAI and Custom Subject/Custom Cache key to Liberty the use of Liberty collectives has shown that, even with SSO login with LTPA configured, a new login is forced when accessing a server not beeing the server that created the Subject. And that effectively breaks our SSO in the existing applications.

A PMR is created for this and holds more information: https://www.ibm.com/support/servicerequest/readPMR.action?pmrNum=34493&branch=001&retainCountryCode=806

So this is a showstopper in our move from WAS Classic to Liberty. When TAI still is supported, included custom cache keys, we feel that Liberty should support the distribution of the authCache.

Maybe in the same way as httpSessions is distributed with the sessionCache-1.0
