Description Josef Cacek 2015-08-12 02:27:17 EDT
Book: Login Module Reference
Revision: n_1575841_login-module-reference_version_6.4_edition_1.0_release_0-revision_6701191
Section: whole guide

Issue description:
The Login Module Reference guide describes mainly login modules (i.e. basic pieces used in classic JAAS authentication). Nevertheless, the "Chapter 8. Authorization Modules" is about another part of security configuration - about the authorization.
The guide should
- either cover all security modules (audit, authorization, authentication, mapping, identity-trust, acl) and then it should be renamed to something more appropriate;
- or contain only info about login modules (i.e. authentication) and the other security modules/providers should be covered in a different guide.

Suggestions for improvement:
Cover all security modules and rename the guide,
or move the "Authorization Modules" chapter out of the guide about login modules.
