Hi,
I'm a little confused. You wanted to know how to configure Tomcat for form based authentication, and I sent you an article on how to do that. Is there something more you need from me? You had offered 10 duke dollars for this post, and if there is more I can do I will help for the remaining amount, but I can't help you getting access to the Tomcat *.xml file.

    Hello.
    I'm trying to setup Form-based Authentication. I keep reading the same (limited) documentation about putting this in your server's .xml files:

  • Form based Authentication Help needed.

    I am using form based authentication to validate a user logging into the website.
    In the web.xml I am using code similar to the following:
    <!-- LOGIN AUTHENTICATION -->
    <login-config>
    <auth-method>FORM</auth-method>
    <realm-name>default</realm-name>
    <form-login-config>
    <form-login-page>login.jsp</form-login-page>
    <form-error-page>error.jsp</form-error-page>
    </form-login-config>
    </login-config>
    When session times out, and user clicks on any link on the webpage, the user is sent to the main login page, with a new session. I need to display a message on this page stating that the session timed out due to inactivity. How can I go about doing this? Is it possible to send user to a different page with this message? Thanks in advance.

  • J_security_check in form-based authentication - not checking for blank passwords

    I am using the LDAP Security Realm to authenticate against an iPlanet
    Directory Server. All works as expected when a user-id and password
    are entered for form-based authentication.
    However, when a userid is entered but no password, j_security_check
    logs the user in successfully. Aparently, this is correct LDAP
    behaviour as anonymous login to the LDAP server is permitted. It seems
    that the j_security_check servlet should check for blank passwords
    before trying to authenticate against the LDAP server and fail
    authentication if this is the case.
    Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    Hi Brian,
    I do not believe it is j_security_check's job to check for blank
    passwords.
    In many security realms, it is "legal" for a user to have a blank
    password. j_security_check forwards whatever password was entered so that
    even users with blank passwords can be authenticated by the realm on the
    backend. For this reason I believe that j_security_check is "doing the
    right thing" by just forwarding whatever is presented to it, rather than
    having its own logic. It is best if j_security_check just acts as a very
    dumb middle man.
    If behavior was altered, it is true that your particular problem would be
    solved, but then many other people would have a problem with their users
    with blank passwords authenticating properly...
    Try looking into how to disable anonymous logins on the LDAP end of
    things. Hope this helps.
    Cheers,
    Joe Jerry

  • Error re-logging in after session timeout using form-based authentication

    Hello,
    We have a web app configured for form-based authentication. When the session times out, we're redirected to our login page as expected. However, after re-logging in, we are not redirected to the desired page (e.g., /faces/OurMainPage.jspx) but to /afr/page_lev_idle.gif.
    Do we have to do anything special for session timeouts?
    Thanks,
    Rico

    Some extra information that might help:
    After re-logging in and we're in /afr/page_lev_idle.gif, we hit the browser Back button (showing the login page again) and then hit the browser Refresh/Reload button and voila we're at the page we expect to be.

  • Any one having idea on Form based authentication ?

    Hi ,
    I need help on configuring web.xml for form based authentication .
    ie if any one clicks or attempts to access any page in application it should redirect to login page.
    Thanks.

    there is no need to write a servlet filter for this any more. It is part of the servlet spec. Web containers should provide it as a matter of course. It will automatically handle the popping up of the login page, and continue to the destination on successful login, all automagically.
    A quick search on Google provides several articles and examples on this very subject. Try http://www.onjava.com/pub/a/onjava/2002/06/12/form.html
    Heres a quick example of web.xml config taken from that article:
    <login-config>
    <auth-method>FORM</auth-method>
    <form-login-config>
    <form-login-page>/login.jsp</form-login-page>

  • Form based authentication very slow

    Hi,
    We are facing problem in form based login authentication. Any application having a form based authentication is taking too much time.
    We are running SAP J2EE Server 6.40 with SP16.
    The database and the J2EE server are in a single machine.
    The basic authentication does not show up any problem.
    The form based takes up too much amount of time but does go through.
    What can be the problem?

  • Webgate : problem in Form based authentication

    I have configured a WebGate to protect an web application hosted on Sun WebServer 6.1.
    It works fine, If I use the basic authentication mechanism. If I access the application, it challenges me uid/pwd thru a small pop up window; after successful authentication I am redirected to the requested application.
    However, the same does not work for Form based authentication. The webgate plugin doe not look like picking the userid/ pwd field from the login.html. Also it redirect to the mentioned action "/access/dummy" in the html.
    My login.html for looks like this :
    <html>
    <form name="myloginform" action="/access/dummy" method="post">
         UserID <input type="text" name="userid" size="20">
         Password <input type="password" name="password" size="20">
         <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Login">
    </form>

    The FacesContext is created by FacesServlet which is
    definied in the web.xml with an url-pattern.
    If you just follow the url-pattern of this
    FacesServlet, usually /faces/ or *.faces, or *.jsf,

    Did you create a new web application or modify an existing web application?
    I would start by checking the ULS logs, maybe there is an incorrect setting within one of the web.config files, or SQL permissions.
    Also, as suggested above, check application pools are running.
    This blog post is a great guide for setting up FBA, check it through to make sure you haven't missed any steps:
