I'm using Tomcat 5.5.3 running as part of an Apache webserver on Fedora 
Core 1.

I need to protect all the webapps running on Tomcat under a username and 
password and have found in the docs that I should be using the Single 
Sign On functionality.

I've put the following inside the <Host ...> tag in server.xml:

<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.authenticator.SingleSignOn"

I believe I now need to put a Realm or realm-name tag somewhere inside 
the same <Host ...> tag, but all the documentation I can find for the 
placement and form of a Realm tag seems to assume that the realm will be 
connected to a database of users, roles and passwords.

I only want one realm, one username and one password for all the webapps.

Thanks in advance for any help, I'm sure I'm just missing the 
appropriate page in the documentation (there seemed to be a lot of links 
labelled FIXME in that area).
