 * Title
Securing Java EE 5.0 Applications with Apache Geronimo

 * Speaker name(s)
Vamsavardhana Reddy Chillakuru

 * Abstract (Short overview of the talk contents)
Security is always a high priority in application development, and with
complex applications the task becomes even more daunting. While the Java EE
specification, JAAS and JACC provide a step in the right direction, every
application server is free to implement container security differently.
Apache Geronimo, a JEE 5.0 certified container, enables storing user
credentials in a variety of data stores viz., simple text files, a database,
an LDAP server and digital certificates. In this session we see how these
data stores can be used to configure application security and how the
necessary infrastructure can be run in Apache Geronimo itself. The session
presents: a) Prerequisites for PropertiesFile, Database, LDAP and
CertificatePropertiesFile realms and shows how to create these realms. b)
Advanced features like auditing, lockout after repeated failures, prinicipal
wrapping, single-sign-on, etc. c) Configuring Web/EJB/EAR application
security. After completing this session, the audience will gain knowledge on
their choice of data stores for user credentials, create various security
realms and deployment plans necessary to secure their applications with
