Sorry for the colloquialism. By "drive-by" login, I mean that the user
was presented with a login page that was not served by Tomcat as a
result of a request for a protected resource (which is the only use case
specified by the servlet specification).

A good example is a login form on your company's home page that posts
directly to j_security_check in your web application. This is not
possible using any unmodified version of Tomcat.

Securityfilter, on the other hand, does allow this kind of login.
