Here you set up the login configuration for the website. This determines how information about the user should be retrieved from the web call, and how it is used to authenticate the user.
The configuration consists of two parts: Login filter and Login modules
1. Login filters
A number of filters are set in the first part to specify how information about the user is to be retrieved. The filters are reviewed each time a user visits a page. Most commonly, usernames and passwords are removed from the call through either BASIC authentication or from the call parameters. The latter method is what is used in the form login process, for example.
2. Login modules
The second part then specifies how to authenticate user information for different login systems. The modules run when the filters detect new information about the user. The most common is that usernames and passwords are checked against a directory service via LDAP, but here it is possible to use other systems. It is also possible for system administrators to add their own ways of doing this by implementing plugins according to the JAAS standard.
