Dear all,

I have a JSF application that uses JAAS and j_security_check (using database stored login and passwords) to let the users log in.
However, the application will be used by elderly users with a remote control and need to remove the need to make the users fill in the login/ password with the keyboard.

Do you know I can create cookies and use them at authentication time to retrieve the login and password?

Yes you could, but would single sign on not be an easier option and more secure option?

For the time being strict security is not an issue. Usability is our main concern
