Subject Session variables in TC 4.0.1 realms
Date Mon, 12 Nov 2001 11:49:00 GMT

I'm going to develop an authentication realm (based on FORM authentication)
for TC 4.0.1 which performs a kind of challenge/response task: Put a
challange into a session variable on the login page (.jsp). The expected
password would then be the encrypted challenge. Whithin my realm the
decryption of the response and the verification against the stored session
variable has to be performed. The problem is that the HTTP request is not
accessible whithin TC 4.x realms. This was possible in TC 3.x. Is there any
possibility to access a session variable in a TC 4.x custom realm? Thank
