yes... jackrabbit provides user management API in it's own
extensions of the JCR API. this allow you to create users,
groups, add members to groups etc...

since access control such as defined by the JCR API deals
with principals rather than users, jackrabbit also defines
principal management API, where the default implementation
is backed by the user management.

not sure how your repository configuration looks like.
but if you have something else than the simplesecuritymanager
you should get everything for free.
