    Elytron: when to use HTTP Authentication vs SASL Authentication?

    Mylos Kathos Master

      Hi all,

      I'd need a clarification about Elytron authentication methods. As I understand from the docs both HTTP Authentication and SASL authentication are available.

      Is it correct to say that Web applications will use Realms connected with HTTP Authentication factories and all other applications will use SASL Authentication ?

      The reason I'm asking it is that also EJB applications, for example, land on http ports, so I wonder what is the actual demarcation between these two authentication methods.

      Thanks!
