Web applications are exposed to a variety of threats and vulnerabilities at the authentication, authorization, service, and domain object levels. Spring Security can help secure these applications against those threats. Spring Security is a popular application security solution for Java applications. It is widely used to secure standalone web applications, portlets, and REST applications.

Spring Security 3.x Cookbook will not only explore Spring-based web applications, but also Java-based and Grails-based applications that can use Spring Security as their security framework. Apart from conventional web applications, this book will also explore securing portlets, RESTful web service applications, and other non-web applications.

Spring Security 3.x Cookbook gives the reader an overview of Spring Security and its implementation with various frameworks. It starts with container-based authentication before taking them on a tour of the main features of Spring Security. It demonstrates security concepts such as BASIC, FORM, and DIGEST authentication and shows them how to integrate the Spring Security framework with various frameworks such as JSF, struts2, and Vaadin. This guide also demonstrates how to utilize container managed security without JAAS. Then, it moves on to setting up a Struts 2 application before showing the reader how to integrate Spring Security with other frameworks such as JSF, Groovy, Wicket, GWT, and Vaadin.
