A starting point is the Identity Management and Authenticated Session Management in the DataONE Architecture documentation.

Overall, what needs to be done is that users need to use the DataONE skin for CILogon to authenticate with their chosen identity provider and receive a CILogin certificate (which is valid for 18 hours). Your application will then use that client certificate when making calls to any DataONE service methods that require authentication. That certificate is used when establishing the SSL connection with the DataONE service.

More details of how to do this specifically using the Java client are provided in the Use of DataONE Java Client Library section of the DataONE developer documentation.
