Subject Different Realms with Differents Authentications Mecanisms
Date Fri, 16 Nov 2007 11:33:00 GMT
Hi everyone!

I have an application based on servlets, and two different authentication
mechanisms. The user can be authenticated with client
certificate(CERT-CLIENT), if there is a client certificate installed on the
web browser. And can be authenticated using an HTML form(FORM)  if the first
method doesn’t authenticate the user. My problem is that I’m able to
authenticate a user, using the Subject Distinguished Name as a username on
HTML form, without a password. 

I found a solution that might be right, but a have a question about that: 


Can I configure different Reamls to use on differents authentications
mechanisms in the same application?
