Does J2EE1.3 spec cover the authentication,
access control, and encryption for web tier?
Thanks

Not sure about encryption, but authentication and access control are discussed. This realizes as the web.xml DTD specification, which contains tags for declaring security constraints for web applications (or parts of them).

Thanks Lasse.
Does J2EE1.3 spec said anything about
userID/password management and user-securityRole
mapping? I think
web.xml only defines the security-role.
