write your own implementation of javax.security.auth.spi.LoginModule and
change the repository's security config accordingly.

> and authorization mechanism.

write your own implementation of the o.a.j.core.security.AccessManager
interface and use that in the repository security config.

eventually in addition

- o.a.j.core.security.authorization.AccessControlProvider
- o.a.j.core.security.authorization.WorkspaceAccessManager

and adjust the workspace security configurations accordingly.

you may also replace the whole SecurityManager itself (again
repository config).

there are various levels where you can plug your own stuff.
what exactly you need to replace depends on your needs.
