Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Update 4 Administrator's Guide

Default Authentication

Default authentication is the preferred method of authentication. The Default setting uses the default method in the server.xml file, or “Basic” if there is no setting in server.xml. If you check Default, the ACL rule doesn’t specify a method in the ACL file. Choosing Default enables you to easily change the methods for all ACLs by editing one line in the obj.conf file.
