Authentication realms

An authentication realm specifies how to...

  1. Collect user credentials, for example, using a login form, basic HTTP authentication or SSO.
  2. Verify user credentials (password matches user name, LDAP server, some other authentication server).
  3. Build the user identity.

The same realm can be used In different security tests. In this case, clients must undergo the authentication process defined for the realm only once

User cookies enable non-interactive logins.
