I am developing a web application in sevlets,Beans and JSPs.What type of security can i provide to my application such that performance might not be degraded?Please explain me clearly?
thanks in advance!
Security is a big subject that can't be addressed adequately in a forum like this. The SecurityFaq links to a number of articles about what threats to watch out for, how to guard against those threats, and how you might use Java's features and 3rd party libraries to do that.
i am talking in terms of secure login details authentication.

What question do you have about that? Are you familiar with servlet security (user names, passwords, roles) as defined in the servlet specification, and implemented by all conforming servlet containers like Tomcat?

I am only familiar with servlet filters.I want to know how to configure SSL or other security means in web servers like tomcat such that login name and password from a login page would be authenticated to server via HTTPS or any other security mechanism which would be easily applied upon such type of authentication in a simple web application.
