Here is an overview of the issue:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Key: DIRRMS-3
    Summary: Add simple authentication APIs
       Type: Task

     Status: Open
   Priority: Major

    Project: Directory RMS
 Components: 
             API

   Assignee: Alex Karasulu

Description:
Add a simple authentication API which is really a password verification method.  Should look
something like so if it is
on the Rms class as a static method:

boolean verifyPassword( User, byte[] ) ;
   verify password based on User's global realm account

boolean verifyPassword( Profile, byte[] ) ;
   verify a password for a specific user application profile
   which might be the same as the global authentication profile

Basically User and Profile are types of Principals although we're not messing with those concepts
at all right now.  Question is should we?  How much more complication will that lead to? 
We want the average Joe developer who learned how to program in Java in 21 days 3 months ago
to be able to use RMS right?
