Subject [jira] Commented: (CXF-2754) Extend WS-Security component for higher level containers be able to use UsernameToken to authenticate a user and populate SecurityContext
Date Wed, 07 Apr 2010 15:36:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CXF-2754?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12854557#action_12854557

Glen Mazza commented on CXF-2754:
---------------------------------

Quote: "Higher level containers should be able to delegate to their own subsystems for authenticating
a user and populating SecurityContext"

I'm not clear on something, why can't that be done (or why would it be suboptimal/inconvenient
for doing that) from the already provided CallbackHandler anyway--have that class call whatever
it needs to for authentication to occur?

> By default, WSS4JInInterceptor relies on CallbackHandlers to provide or validate a password
for handling digests and clear-texts respectively.
> Also, the default SecurityContext is partially populated and thus can not be used for
the authorization decisions.
> Higher level containers should be able to delegate to their own subsystems for authenticating
a user and populating SecurityContext
