Hi Suresh,

Sorry for the late response. Didnt see above comment. I think we should wait for 0.5 release
and then add this to trunk.

> Purpose of this feature :
> This is a framework to handle security within Airavata. For the moment we are only focusing
on REST related security. We can use different methodologies to do authentication and authorization.
E.g :- authentication using Basic Auth, Session Token. Responsibility of this framework is
to hide details about underlying authentication mechanism. Airavata will only be aware about
the framework but not about underlying authentication implementation.
