Figure out and implement some kind of simple authentication mechanism
---------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: DIREVE-58
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIREVE-58
     Project: Directory Eve
        Type: New Feature
  Components: jndi-provider  
    Reporter: Alex Karasulu
 Assigned to: Alex Karasulu 


We want to at least facilitate simple authentication and anonynous binds alike with a simple
JAAS based solution.  Let's look into using security manger base operations like doAs and
doPrivledged to understand how to sandbox users as well.  

Plus there's the whole problem of how do we manage the logical user session?  What's the associatation
with new contexts and users - also how do we protect from impersonation.  

How do we set the admin password when starting for the first time.  Do we just use the first
principal and credentials given for the uid=admin,ou=system special super user account?  These
are all questions that need to be answered.
