Acegi Security makes this latter area – application security – much easier. In terms of authorization, to keep things simple we’ve configured the tutorial to only . A complete system should have to log off function. Be in no hurry to code, first imagine. Review: The logoutFilter filter, I take you to understand. The registration is done by han.

The interfaces and classes detailed above provide a scalable, customisable ACL solution that is decoupled from your application code. You can define a custom SecurityContext implementation be used in your application by setting the context property on the HttpSessionContextIntegrationFilter bean.

Whilst you could easily implement your own AOP concern to achieve this, Acegi Security provides a convenient hook that has several sceurity implementations that integrate with its ACL capabilities.

Generally you can just substitute ” SecurityContextHolder ” for ” ContextHolder “, and ” SecurityContext ” for ” SecureContext “, and you’ll have the primary meaning of such documentation.

acfgi Finally, let’s take the next step up and create the authentication managers with the DAO authentication provider as the sole provider. There is a lifecycle issue to consider when hosting Filter s in an IoC container instead of a servlet container. An understanding of the configuration options to make Acegi do it’s thing.

Only unusual requirements would require the ProviderManager to be replaced with a different AuthenticationManager. Recall the secure object contains details of the request, so the ObjectDefinitionSource implementation will be able to extract the details it requires to lookup the relevant ConfigAttributeDefinition. The AccessDecisionManager then decides whether or not to throw an AccessDeniedException based on its assessment of the votes.

It would not be tuhorial to use both types of security interceptors in the same application, with AspectJSecurityInterceptor being used for domain object instance security and the AOP Alliance MethodSecurityInterceptor being used for services layer security.


Specifically, you define a BasicAclDao against the provider, so different ACL repository types can be accessed in a pluggable manner.

As mentioned above, this is optional and unnecessary if you do not require proxy-granting tickets. It worked for me nicely. Bunard on May 25, The final and generally unrecommended approach is via Container Adapters, which allow supported web containers to perform the authentication themselves.

Welcome to enterprise-wide single sign on! The browser tuttorial automatically check that the certificate presented by a server has been aegi ie digitally signed by one of a list of trusted certificate authorities which it maintains.

Every application server vendor is free to implement container security differently nor are they required to use JAAS. The voter would look at the method invocation to locate the first argument of type sample. When the first compatible AuthenticationProvider is located, it is passed the authentication request. It also maps the certificate to an application user and loads that user’s set of granted authorities for use with the standard Acegi Security infrastructure.

So we have to go to the context configuration file of tutrial project. The security architecture was designed from the ground up using “The Spring Way” of development, which includes using bean contexts, interceptors and interface-driven programming. You will be prompted to authenticate, and a series of usernames and passwords are suggested on that page. Assuming that ACL contains one of the listed requirePermission s, the voter will vote to grant access.

Pathway from ACEGI to Spring Security 2.0

The AuthenticationManager interface is very simple:. This is discussed further below, as it is the main way authentication is initially handled. It delegates this responsibility to an XAuthoritiesPopulator.


AuthorizeTag is used to include content if the current principal holds certain GrantedAuthority s. This means the jsessionid is never sent across an insecure channel.

A stateful client is considered any that originates via the CasProcessingFilter. For example, Internet Explorer fails to present an ” opaque ” token on subsequent requests in the same session. This authentication request will then be handed to the configured AuthenticationManager. The application context will need to define the BasicProcessingFilter and its required collaborator:. Grant authorities using GrantedAuthorityImpl where possible.

This is the same issue as with digest authentication. The ContextHolder was a ThreadLocal. Indeed multiple providers can modify the object, as the result of the previous provider is passed to the next in the list.

The concept of Security Interception is key to protecting resources under Acegi. ConcurrentSessionFilterbecause it doesn’t use any SecurityContextHolder functionality but needs to update the SessionRegistry to reflect ongoing requests from the principal. Yale University produces an enterprise-wide single sign on system known as CAS.

As expected, the cumulative result of all providers is returned from the wrapper ProviderManager. You can learn more about CAS at http: CasAuthenticationProvider will validate the service ticket using a TicketValidator implementation.

Like BasicAuthenticationFilterthtorial authentication is successful an Authentication request token will be placed into the SecurityContextHolder. Erik Kerkhoven on April 19, This default file is in English. In general, the following is recommended:.
