Does Geronimo support JACC?

If so then perhaps we could utilize that.
This document is for WebSphere 6 which I understand is a J2EE 1.4 container
the same as Geronimo.

Looks like this subject has been approached before but from a different

This one and the same, TAM = WEBSeal = Tivoli Access Manager. Crack one and
you have it all. Surely some of the IBM guys are working on this for their
version of WebSphere Community.

Subject: Re: Geronimo Web Interceptors, WebSSO with Authentication Proxy

I'd like to be able to plug third-party authentication providers like
this into Geronimo.  It's possible we can do it with a custom security
login module.  How much do you know about the WebSEAL API?  If there
was some remote call we could make, for example, to supply a username
and password and get back whether it was valid and a list of groups,
that would be pretty easy to integrate.  But I haven't heard of
WebSEAL before, so I'm not even sure if it operates on usernames and
passwords at all.
