In trunk and perhaps 2.0.2 the default security config is configured  
in the server-security-config module.  It's set up to use the  
properties file login module.  In trunk this is set up as a plugin  
and the default properties files are included in the plugin.  For  
serious usage I'd recommend coming up with your own real-server- 
security-config module using kerberos/ldap/sql/whatever and replacing  
the default one with it using

If you want to keep using the toy properties file login module but  
just change the credentials you can edit var/security/ and var/security/  The admin group  
gets remote deploy/lifecycle access.

hope this helps
