Active Directory Authentication

All,

I have a question regarding FORM Based Authentication. How is j_password protected from hacking meaning that if a Servlet Filter is written then the NT password can be read from the request which is not good for users as they do not want theit NT passwords to be seen. Is there any way to protect the password from being seen? Does App servers like WLS/WAS/JRun etc., do it? If so how?

Thanks,
Tom

All filters must be disabled for authentication. Check with your servlet container.

How do I disable Servlet Filters? Is there a config file?

Another question, Can I write my own AA (Authentication & Authoursation) module by overcoming the password display problem? If so how?

Thanks,
Tom
