    Changes to Realm Interface sought

    Anil Saldanha Master

      Remy/Mladen, I propose the following method addition to the Realm interface for Tomcat 6. This would take care of the needs for header based authentication (which may include some form of SSO/Identity Management usecases) and JSR-196 (Java Authentication Container SPI) needs.

      public Principal authenticate(Request request, Response response,
       LoginConfig loginConfig) throws Exception;

      The current limitation with the Realm interface is the loss of the request object during authentication.
