Hum, I believe you are right: as you point out correctly, Syncope core 
does not manage any kind of user sessions - while console does; we 
should change that wiki page to reflect this difference.

As for core not managing sessions, changes on such topic are indeed in 
the roadmap (SYNCOPE-699 being currently set for 2.1):[DISCUSS]+Apache+Shiro+integration+for+authentication+and+authorization

As reported in my comment there, not sure if Shiro is still the best 
option, but we'll see when the work for 2.1 is actually going to start - 
at the moment all efforts are towards 2.0.
