J2EE Security Presentation Preview

An early draft of the slides and code for my presentation at tomorrow’s AJUG Java DevCon 2004 are posted here. The presentation and code are a bit further along, but I want to solicit feedback on this earlier version to see what you think, and so that people will actually attend tomorrow.

The focus of the presentation is on the components of J2EE application security that help manage user authentication and authorization, but are often overlooked. In keeping with my tendencies, the focus of the presentation is on the practical, meat-and-potatoes functionality that can be used in every day applications, not on exotic and esoteric themes that you may use some day in the distant future. Post your thoughts and feedback here – I’ll be glad to consider them for inclusion in the final presentation. What’s missing? What’s unclear? What could use additional illustration?
