Subject Re: Tomcat Form Authentication that requires no password for third party SSO
Date Thu, 27 Jan 2011 17:40:47 GMT
You could implement your own authenticator,
extending the class org.apache.catalina.authenticator.AuthenticatorBase
protected abstract boolean authenticate(Request request, Response 
response, LoginConfig config) throws IOException;

This would require a bit customization of Tomcat, but I would implement 
my own class, and my own authentication scheme
