Undertow has handlers which are like a chain of interceptors. It does
have a SecurityHandler
to which you can define authentication mehanisms. Standard servlet auth
are available to you. If you would like to change behavior of
authentication, you write your own authentication mechanism.

Not sure what "custom auth scheme" means yet, but my

Custom Auth mech is sufficient.

Custom Auth mech on the consumer.
* traditional oauth thirdparty auth
Custom Auth mech on the
consumer. External third party stuff is config
to auth mech.
* bearer token auth
Custom Auth Mech.
* bearer token grants
Not Undertow but a concern of your auth
mechanism. May use IDM/Meta.
* a few management URIs for distributed log-out
You may need
handlers here but I guess your auth mech can probably
handle global log out also.
We handle GLO in our SAML IDP. I am guessing your oauth workflows will
be similar given that tokens come as headers rather than post data (xml)
I'm also not exactly sure what a "handler" is supposed to be yet, but
based on the above, there's a number of URI endpoints that need to be
added and supported automatically.
I'm currently bogged down trying to pass the jaxrs2 tck. My next task
is to try and port my oauth stuff, at least as a prototype, to help
flush out the security APIs or at least to be an additional guinea pig.
