public final class SecurityContextCredentials
extends Object
implements Credentials

Credentials implementation that wraps a ModeShape security context.

This class provides a means of passing security information about an authenticated user into the ModeShape JCR session implementation without using JAAS. This class effectively bypasses ModeShape's internal authentication mechanisms, so it is very important that this context be provided for authenticated users only.
