Hi, I have been trying to fix a problem with single sign-on (SSO) security in JBoss 4.0.4 GA.  The issue is that I cannot restrict some applications from taking part in the SSO domain.  No matter what settings I use, once a user successfully authenticates in an SSO application, he has access to ALL JBoss apps, even if they are listed in a different security domain.  Here are the details:

Single sign-on is activated with the following in deploy/jbossweb-tomcat55.sar/server.xml:

All liferay components are in this security domain:

I have a few applications  (xforms) that I want to participate in the SSO domain.  These work perfectly.

I have another application (/axis) in a different security domain, which is still accessible to SSO users.


In conf/login-config.xml:

 <application-policy name = "axis">
          <login-module code="org.jboss.security.auth.spi.UsersRolesLoginModule"
             flag = "required">
           <module-option name="usersProperties">props/axis-users.properties</module-option>
           <module-option name="rolesProperties">props/axis-roles.properties</module-option>


<application-policy name = "PortalRealm">
             <login-module code ="com.liferay.portal.security.jaas.PortalLoginModule"
                flag = "required">
                <module-option name="userClassNames">com.liferay.portal.security.jaas.PortalPrincipal</module-option>
             <module-option name="roleClassNames">com.liferay.portal.security.jaas.PortalRole</module-option>

The above block is not necessary to make Liferay security work.  I added it myself, but it did not change any noticeable behavior.

I intend to make /axis only available to those with a specific username and password, however JBoss currently allows all Liferay users to have access to axis despite it being in a different security domain.  I have had problems with the java:/blah/blah naming convention, and I have seen a few posts indicating this might be an issue.  Does anyone have a suggestion for how I might limit SSO access to certain apps?  Thanks!  -Ben
