Subject: Re: [keycloak-dev] security proxy prototype
I don't see the similarity to PL HTTP Security. You use this when there
is no Keycloak adapter for your environment (i.e. python, ruby, etc.).
Take a look at our code  The proxy was ridiculously easy to implement
and used our existing Undertow authentication plugin.
Using PL HTTP Security would be overkill, wouldn't work because the
servlet API isn't used by Undertow's proxy impl, and would require me to
write an adapter specific to the PL HTTP Security Auth SPI (which I'm
not convinced can handle OAuth).
From a functional perspective they are similar. From an implementation
perspective, yes, they are different. PL one is based on servlet api and that is a blocker
I was just curious if the idea was the same. Protect paths based on certain constraints.
