> Application security can be extremely confusing and frustrating, especially for Java
EE developers. Yet, it's an absolute requirement for nearly every application. An integration
with a strong security framework is desperately needed. DeltaSpike could offer a module that
makes security very approachable and integrate well with CDI and other Java EE technologies.
> Apache Shiro [1] appears to be an ideal candidate. The goals for the project seem to
align perfectly with this need, as Les explains in this article [2]. Apache Shiro has many
things going for it that make it a good match for DeltaSpike:
> * a top level Apache project 
> * actively developed 
> * mature (nearly a decade)
> * pluggable & extensible (the key for CDI integration)
> * works in web, ejb *and* java se environments
> * supports all aspects of security (authentication, authorization, permissions, certificates,
> * easy to use
> * subjective bonus: has a cool name and logo
> It seems like Shiro could really use some CDI integration to make it even simpler. (Several
integrations have already been explored [3]). We can start with some producers and then build
on the declarative functionality that has previously been explored in Seam.
