Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP9 Administrator's Guide

Default Authentication

Default authentication is the preferred authentication method. The Default setting uses the default method in the obj.conf file, or “Basic” if there is no setting in the obj.conf file. If you select Default, the ACL rule does not specify a method in the ACL file. Choosing Default allows you to easily change the methods for all ACLs by editing one line in the obj.conf file.
