I'd *better* know it, because I wrote it ... :-)

Look in package org.apache.catalina.authenticator in the Tomcat source
code for the implementation classes that implement the various login
methods.  You'll need to understand quite a bit about Tomcat's internal
architecture for this to work -- there are some UML diagrams and such
stuff in the "Catalina Documentation" part of the tomcat-docs webapp.

However, I'm afraid that I'm not going to be able to assist you any, due
to time constraints.
