    help with JAAS auth.conf

    Eric Newbie


      I'm trying to get into JBoss security but am having trouble getting started.

      I've written an 'auth.conf' file that looks like this:
      client {
      org.jboss.security.ClientLoginModule required

      After an initial 'no conf found' exception, I've started launching my java app with -Djava.security.auth.login.config=auth.conf. This seems to make the system find my file, but results in the following exception:

      java.lang.SecurityException: no protocol: auth.conf
      at com.sun.security.auth.login.ConfigFile.getAppConfigurationEntry(ConfigFile.java:221)
      at javax.security.auth.login.LoginContext.init(LoginContext.java:176)
      at javax.security.auth.login.LoginContext.(LoginContext.java:393)
      at com.hcm.vpm.tradeViewer.LoginModel.login(LoginModel.java:62)
      at com.hcm.vpm.tradeViewer.LoginModel.handleActionEvent(LoginModel.java:107)
      at com.hcm.formElement.model.AbstractModel$1.runImpl(AbstractModel.java:53)
      at com.hcm.tools.thread.HcmThread.run(HcmThread.java:196)

      I've checked the javadoc for the ConfigFile class, and (purchased and) read the JBoss security docs, but can't find anything that would help me get past this. Has anyone seen this exception before? Is there something wrong with my .conf file?
