Security 0.1

with one comment

Using Servlet Filters, I was able to implement our own in house security solution for Projectrix. I’ll also apply the same implementation to Hardwire. Although I have to admit it’s a primitive form of security, it’ll work for now. Security for web apps is more than just protecting pages for authenticated users. I’ve realized there are also things like https,roles etc which I have saw skimming over Spring security.

Although like Dan said, what we have done won’t be used for the feature that connects our two systems, at least now we know how to implement a filter. I’ll think I’ll take this experience as practice. Good practice. Besides we’ll be using the same concept of the filter like the one we just implemented to authenticate assessors who go to Projectrix via their emails when they’re given projects to assess by users.
