Hi,

Does tomcat provide container managed security?

I don�t think it does as it is not an application server. I was unable to find any links on this as well.

Tomcat is an application server and it does provide container managed security.

The best resource for this is the servlet spec.
You can find a link to it in my signature.

A normal Tomcat installation comes with a file named security-manager-howto.html in the tool-docs directory. You will also find a security related comment on user authentication in the server.xml file.

The /conf/catalina.policy file can be used to give minutely detailed security for selected web applications.
