I don't understand this comment at all. 'Passwords' in tomcat can be 
managed by a whole host of authentication schemes. I use SSL to protect 
access to the password on the net and MD5 encoded passwords in a 
database for user authentication and access control. It depends entirely 
upon how you configure your system.
