JAAS Realm

           Summary: JAAS Realm
           Product: Tomcat 4
           Version: 4.0 Final
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Unknown
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: ghouston@yahoo.com


The Realm features of Tomcat require that I maintain my own list of users and 
passwords.  I would rather just authenticate the users against the Operating 
System.  Also, the roles of these users should come from OS group assignements.

I know the features of JAAS (which is built into Java 1.4, or an extension for 
Java 1.3) will allow you to authenticate the credentials against the Operating 
System.  Why not have a JAAS Realm?
