Security in Interceptor Filter

Hello All,
I'm using an MVC based framework (similar to Struts). I have a basic Question, why should I use a pattern like Interceptor Filter to authenticate users instead of doing the same thing inside the controller servlet.

Is there any practical use of Interceptor Filter while using Frant Controller.

Pls help...
Thanks,
Reema

I think u can prepare different filters as per ur requirement and apply easily these filters before calling any of ur servlets,pages. So applying restrictions 2 the servlets or actions whenever u want easily.
