Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-677) Repeated login (after session invalidation) with different credentials results in incorrect role set.

Ivan Dubrov commented on GERONIMO-677:
--------------------------------------

>I'm not very clear on how sessions work, but I don't think invalidating a session logs
you out. Please let me know if I am wrong. 

AFAIR, it should, but in this case it does not matter. I've tried to login from completely
separate browsers IE and FireFox, so they don't have any shared state (cookies, etc) - the
same problem. The second login gets group principal of previous login (made from separate
browser).

>It looks to me as if you might have the user "user" assigned to the groups "user" and
"manager".

Later I'll attach my configuration, but the disproof is very simple. If I login as a regular
user after server restart, I will get only two principals - GeronimoGroupPrincipal("user")
and GeronimoUserPrincipal("someusername"). I get two group principals only after second login
(e.g, login as a regular user first, then as a manager, or vice-versa).

> Consider we have two users, "user" with role "user" and "manager" with role "manager"
and two secured areas /user/* and /manager/*, so only "user"'s can access pages with URL /user/*
and only "manager"'s can access pages with URL /manager/*.
> If we log in as "user", we can access only /user/* pages, "403 Forbidden" if we try to
access /manager/* pages. It is OK. 
> Now, if we clean the session (request.getSession().invalidate()), we will be logged out,
so we cannot access nor /user/*, nor /manager/* pages - server redirects to the login page.
It is OK.
> But if we login second time, as a "manager", we can access both page sets - /user/* and
/manager/*! It means that authenticated user owns both roles "user" and "manager", but this
is impossible combination!
