  • AbstractPreAuthenticatedProcessingFilter vs AbstractAuthenticationProcessingFilter

    Hi all,

    After reading the documentation i've some doubts about what to implement in one project. The project needs a certificate validation, because of that, I think that i've to use x509 filter. Reading about this filter I saw that is an AbstractPreAuthenticatedProcessingFilter. What's the difference between PreAuthenticatedFilter and AuthenticationFilter? In the 2 cases what you can do is "validate" an user, no?

    My other question is that authenticationfilter has a handler for manage exception: authentication-failure-handler and i can handle the exceptions in a xml for example:

    <bean id="exceptionManager" class=" tion.ExceptionMappingAuthenticationFailureHandler" >
    <property name="exceptionMappings">
    <prop key="BadCredentialsException">/error/badcredentials</prop>

    Is there any similar for use in the preauthenticatedfilters?

    Any help would be apreciated, thanks to all.

    PD: sorry for my mistakes writing, english isn't my first language...
