The configuration consists of two parts. In the first part you set a number of filter, deciding how information about the user should be fetched. The most common is that user name and password is fetched from the request either through BASIC authentication or from the requests parameters. The last method is used for for instance form login.
The second part states how the user information should be authenticated towards different login systems. Most common is that user name and password is controlled towards a directory service through LDAP, but it is possible to use other system. It is also possible for the system's administrator to add custom settings through implementing plugins according to the JAAS standard.
This function requires the right "Site properties".
