> Some applications authenticate users themselves and just need to access the repository
on behalf of these pre-authenticated users.
> Examples of such pre-authentications include SSO solutions or web applications using
a web-based authentication protocol not easily implementable in a JAAS LoginModule, for example
OpenID or similar.
> In such situations a password may not be provided in SimpleCredentials and thus regular
login with user name and password is not possible.
> Therefore I propose the enhancement of the AbstractLoginModule to allow for setting a
specific attribute in the SimpleCredentials attribute map. If this attribute is set, authentication
and login succeeds and a session for the user named in the SimpleCredentials is created.
> As a starter we might just check for the presence of the attribute.
