Package org.apache.shiro.authc Description

Core interfaces and exceptions concerning Authentication (the act of logging-in).

Shiro abbreviates the word 'AuthentiCation' as authc to distinguish it seperately from 'AuthoriZation', abbreviated as authz.

The primary item of interest in this package is the Authenticator interface, which acts as the entry point (facade) to all other other authentication components. Other components, interfaces and exceptions are here to support Authenticator implementations.
