Package org.apache.catalina.realm

This package contains Realm implementations for the various supported realm technologies for authenticating users and identifying their associated roles. The Realm that is associated with a web application's Context (or a hierarchically superior Container) is used to resolve authentication and role presence questions when a web application uses container managed security as described in the Servlet API Specification.

The implementations share a common base class that supports basic functionality for all of the standard Realm implementations.
