Implementing security API using Kotlin

In this section, we will discuss how to protect a REST resource by implementing the security API using Kotlin. We created a resource to create and read an organization as an identity data in the previous chapter. In this chapter, we will add a security layer to this RESTful service by implementing custom HttpAuthenticationMechanism and IdentityStore mechanisms.

We will add the following security-related dependencies to the existing dependencies:

        <dependency>            <groupId>org.glassfish.soteria</groupId>            <artifactId></artifactId>            <version>${org.glassfish.soteria}</version>        </dependency>        <dependency>            <groupId>javax.servlet</groupId>            <artifactId>javax.servlet-api</artifactId> <version>${javax.servlet-api}</version> ...
