Felix Meschberger commented on JCR-3294:

Looks like a duplicate to JCR-3293 ?

>                 Key: JCR-3294
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-3294
>             Project: Jackrabbit Content Repository
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: jackrabbit-core
>    Affects Versions: 2.4
>            Reporter: angela
> based on JCR 2355 we added a very simplistic way to indicate to the login module that
the given credentials have
> been preauthenticated. as already stated in the original issue this poses a major security
issue as it leaves the
> repository access untrusted.
> i would like to raise those security concern again and would therefore like to get rid
of that hack in the long run.
> the suggested procedure:
> - deprecate the attribute (immediately)
> - log a warning if it is used (immediately)
> - document how to fix code that is currently relying on that attribute
> - remove support altogether for the next major release
