Using Websphere as a security front end

Hi,

We use Websphere for customer-facing web apps, and have apps that are secured, users need to log in.

One group in our organization has created an app on a Tomcat server. They want to keep this behind the firewall - they don't want to worry about putting it on the public network. They want to see if it's possible to use WebSphere as a kind of reverse proxy that also handles security. So when a user goes to a particular subdomain, they go through Websphere, and have to be authenticated, but the web app is really running somewhere else on Tomcat.

Is this possible?

Thanks,
Michael Davis

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
