    Form-based authemtication

    Libor Kramolis Newbie

      Hello.

      I would like to ask if Seam supports standard container managed authentication, i.e. FORM-based authentication?

      Looking at Security capture of Seam Documentation it looks like it supports just BASIC, DIGEST and custom method authentications.

      Thanks for your answer.

      Best regards,
      Libor

          No, we don't support FORM based authentication at this time. Is there a particular reason you need it?

            Out corporation has User Management (UM) application to manage users and roles for all company applications. There is no self-registration in single applications.

            Out application platform is IBM WebSphere 6.1 (WAS). We have implementation of custom user registry (external JACC authorization provider), which negotiates container managed authentication/authorization.

            Our applications transparently use FORM-based authentication and users are checked against UM.

            This approach ensures the Subject of logged in user contains LTPA token in its private credentials. It means I can call EJB deployed in different WAS instance and this call is trusted.

            So thera two + one reasons:
            - all applications use same user registry
            - LTPA token
            + form-based auth is "recommended" solution of out company

              And do you plan to support form-based authentication in future releases?
