JBoss Kerberos/SPNego Support

Here is the GA version of the JBoss Negotiation project that is being driven by Darran Lofthouse.
http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=149589


Why is this important?
- Allows you to do seamless SSO to your web applications running on JBoss Application Server if you authenticate to the desktop (Windows 2000/XP) via Active Directory. This uses SPNego.
- Compatible with FreeIPA (Fedora, Fedora Directory Server).

This project, http://spnego.sourceforge.net/spnego_jboss.html, has an example on how to get authentication working for JBoss.

It uses a SPNEGO Http Servlet Filter.
