>>> Here's  thought. I think AJAX security can be split into either:
>>> a) REST endpoint security (which goes back to securing the REST endpoint classes)
>> PicketBox core will have implementations of JSON Security. I am unsure 
>> DS is planning on that.  IMO all REST based interactions are either atom

> It's not planning anything here. Actually Marius is just talking about restricting access to REST endpoints, probably using an annotation on the endpoint.
>>> b) URL security
>>> Now for the former, I think we should use the DeltaSpike @Secured facilities (I don't know exactly in what state they are right now, as existing stuff is interspersed with roadmap stuff in my head right now).
