i have came so far developing my first project using primefaces but i didn't though about securing it. so i have done some search about the available solution like acegi, then i though about implementing my own security solution:
the authentication is done via a simple authentication dialog with login and password (am using for this a bean called connexionBean which store whether the authentication has succeeded or not).
for the authorization part, i add a filter which intercept any request and check the connexionBean related to the session and redirect the request when the client isn't authenticated.
so, is my solution is enough or it can breached???

Within your java bean, are you storing your login credentials within a database?

If so, you might be vulnerable to SQL injection attacks. Make sure you sanitize all user input.

Also, have you configured account lockouts for multiple unsuccessful login attempts.

There are many things to consider when assessing your application's security.

PM me if you wish to discuss further.

thanks for replying, i have already sanitized my inputs for SQL injection, i think that i still have to lock accounts for multiple unsuccessful login attempts, that didn't came to my mind.
