In the previous Spring Security Hello World Example, we have built a simple Spring MVC Hello World application and took the advantage of Spring Security by using the default login form provided. In this tutorial we will go a bit further and build our own login for our Spring Security Custom Login Form application.
In this Spring Security Tutorial, we will build a Simple Spring MVC Hello World application integrated with Spring Security features. In this application, we will be dealing with two major security areas Authentication and Authorization.
- Authentication – It is nothing but validating whether the user is a valid user or not.
- Authorization – Deciding whether the particular user is allowed to perform a certain activity in the application or not.
