+        <p>
+          Jackrabbit uses the
+          <a href="http://java.sun.com/products/jaas/">Java Authentication and Authorization
Service</a>
+          (JAAS) for authenticating users. You should be able to use any
+          JAAS LoginModule implementation (e.g. the LoginModules in the
+          <a href="http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/guide/security/jaas/spec/com/sun/security/auth/module/package-summary.html">com.sum.security.auth.module</a>
+          package) for authentication. See the JAAS documentation for
+          configuration instructions.

+        <p>
+          The current Jackrabbit
+          <a href="apidocs/org/apache/jackrabbit/core/security/SimpleAccessManager.html">SimpleAccessManager</a>
+          class only supports three access levels: anonymous, normal, and
+          system. Anonymous users have read access while normal and system
+          users have full read-write access. You need to implement a custom
+          <a href="apidocs/org/apache/jackrabbit/core/security/AccessManager.html">AccessManager</a>
+          class to get more fine-grained access control.
