in web.xml for the manager app, force it to use SSL,
that way the only way to connect into it is over SSL and you are good to go,
even with basic authentication

Is there a way to configure the manager app to use form-based or digest
authentication so I can use SSL to encrypt the login?

As I understand it, with basic authentication the passwords are sent in
plain text across the net, allowing them to be snooped out from caches
and logs. I've no experience of this, so any comments would be appreciated.
