Subject:   CLIENT-CERT auth-method not covered!

I was really interested in reading about CLIENT-CERT authentication method in login-config. But for some reason, it is ignored in this article let alone cover it!


----------------------------


<login-config>
<auth-method>BASIC</auth-method>
<realm-name>OnJava Application</realm-name>
</login-config>


The <login-config> sub-element defines the authentication method for the defined realm. The possible values are BASIC, DIGEST, and FORM. And the <realm-name> sub-element names the Web resource that this <login-config> maps to.
