Summary

Java EE security is a very broad topic which can address small and day-to-day security requirements to large, complex, and unique issues which only can rise for large-scale complex applications.

In this chapter we briefly introduced Web modules, EJB modules, and application client module's security in different levels including authentication, authorization, and transport security. We discussed users, groups, and role mapping down to a good level of detail, along with small topics like HTTP session and performance issues of using cryptography.

In next chapter, we will discuss JAAS and GlassFish security realm in more detail to complete the basic information we need to develop a secure enterprise application in Chapter 3.
