Besides the simple text and database realms ( using user/pass for auth )
we do have an adapter to J2EE auth system ( I think it's based on JAAS),
and I heard about one JAAS  implementation.

My advice is to develop your authentication code based on your needs,
without any dependency on tomcat, and use an adapter - if you need help
with the later I can help.
The adapter will have access to all the tomcat internals, I hope you'll
have all you need there.
