Securing Java applications with Acegi, Part 1: Architectural overview and security filters

This series starts with an introduction to the common security concerns
of enterprise applications and explains how Acegi resolves them. You will see Acegi's architectural model and its security
filters, which embody most of the functionality you'll use to secure your
applications. You will learn how filters work individually, how they can be
combined, and how a filter chain functions from start to finish in an
enterprise security implementation. This article concludes with a sample application
that demonstrates Acegi's implementation of a URL-based security system. The following two articles in the series will explore some of the more
advanced uses of Acegi, including how to design and host access control
policies and then configure Acegi to use them.
