Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP11 Administrator's Guide

Specifying Users and Groups

With user and group authentication, users are prompted to enter a username and password before they can access the resource specified in the access control rule.

Sun Java System Web Server checks lists of users and groups stored either in an LDAP server, such as Sun Java System Directory Server, or in an internal file-based authentication database.

You can allow or deny access to everyone in the database, you can allow or deny specific people by using wildcard patterns, or you can select who to allow or deny from lists of users and groups.
