JAAS Tutorials

This page links to two tutorials demonstrating various aspects of the use of JAAS (JavaTM Authentication and Authorization Service):

  1. JAAS Authentication

    Explains how an application can authenticate users using JAAS.

  2. JAAS Authorization

The authentication technology used for these tutorials is very basic, just ensuring that the user specifies a particular name and password. Thus, these tutorials can be run by everyone.
