Not sure what you mean by "authentication filtering", but start here for general information about servlet security: http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/ServletsFaq#security

Pretty much any decent book on J2EE that covers JSPs and servlets will have a chapter on configuring the container-managed security system and FORM-based authentication.

They then usually ruin all their good work by presenting demos that have a "login page" done as user code instead of using the container security system. Long experience has taught me that the technical term for user-code logins is "hacked". The container-managed security system has its own pre-debugged login code which is much more secure.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
