How about
8.1 Concepts - Explanation of J2EE and Java 2 security models
8.2 Authentication with Realms
8.2.1 Simple realm
8.2.2 JDBC Realm
8.2.3 Custom realms
8.3 Authorization
8.3.1 J2EE role based

In particular, it should try to explain in simpler terms than the API
spec how J2EE roles are designed to work, covering the mapping from
developer roles to deployment roles.

8.3.2 Java 2 security policy

Don't think realms should be 'advanced'.  It should be convered in
security.  However, maybe there should be an advanced security section
covering

13. Security
13.1 Using Tomcat authentication with Webservers
13.1.1 Apache
13.1.2 IIS
13.1.3 iPlanet
13.1.4 Netware
13.1.5 Lotus Domino
