Folks...new to this forum, so, pardon my ignorance.
I am trying to understand the acegi authentication model & how it fits into the jBoss Portal framework. Our company wants to use jBoss Portal as the front-end to expose several underlying applications. (all of these apps are J2EE, some are spring, most are not)
So, I am wondering if I can somehow
- configure jBoss Portal to use acegi for macro-level authentication (and tie-in acegi with our existing SSO server)
- transfer the autheticated context to the underlying apps
- then tweak the underlying apps to use acegi to manage authorization in a finer granular level.
Am I on the right path ? Am I missing something ? Thanks in advance.
