Jakarta Authentication 2.0
Jakarta Authentication defines a general low-level SPI for authentication mechanisms, which are controllers
that interact with a caller and a container’s environment to obtain the caller’s credentials, validate these,
and pass an authenticated identity (such as name and groups) to the container.
Jakarta Authentication consists of several profiles, with each profile telling how a specific container
(such as Jakarta Servlet) can integrate with- and adapt to this SPI.

Platform and Profile Specifications
The Jakarta EE Platform and Profile specifications are the umbrella specifications for the individual specifications. The
Jakarta EE Platform includes most of the individual specifications, while the Profile specifications include the individual
