Apache Shiro Authentication Features

Authentication is the process of identity verification– you are trying to verify a user is who they say they are. To do so, a user needs to provide some sort of proof of identity that your system understands and trusts.

The Shiro framework is designed to make authentication as clean and intuitive as possible while providing a rich set of features. Below is a highlight of the Shiro authentication features.
