1: Form Submission</h3>

<p>TODO: Require POST form (at any URL ??)</p>

<p>The form is rendered by redirecting the client to the URL indicated by the <tt>form.login.form</tt>
configuration parameter. This redirection request may accompanyied by the following parameters:</p>

	<li><tt>resource</tt> &#8211; The resource to which the user should
be redirected after successful login. This request parameter should be submitted back to the
server as the <tt>resource</tt> parameter.</li>
	<li><tt>j_reason</tt> &#8211; This parameter indicates the reason for
rendering the login form. If this parameter is set, it is set to <tt>INVALID_CREDENTIALS</tt>
indicating a previous form submission presented invalid username and password or <tt>TIMEOUT</tt>
indicating a login session has timed out. The login form servlet/script can present the user
with an appropriate message.</li>

<h3><a name="OpenIDAuthenticationHandler-SecurityConsiderations"></a>Security

<p>Work in progress ....</p>

<p>OpenIDAuthentication has some limitations in terms of security:</p>

	<li>User name and password are transmitted in plain text in the initial form submission.</li>
	<li>The Cookie used to provide the authentication state or the HTTP Session ID may
be stolen.</li>

<p>To prevent eavesdroppers from sniffing the credentials or stealing the Cookie a secure
transport layer should be used such as TLS/SSL, VPN or IPSec.</p>
