Oware JAAS

The Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS) is the basis of Oware security. JAAS is a standard extension to the JavaTM 2 Software Development Kit, v 1.3. Currently, Java 2 provides code­source-based access controls (access controls based on where the code originated from and who signed the code). However, it cannot enforce access controls based on who runs the code. JAAS provides a framework that augments the Java 2 security architecture with such support.
