Hi,

Building a LoginModule in Jboss base class AbstractServerLoginModule and need to get client peer address IP from within 'login' method?

    Not a straightforward way. But there was a post earlier, that advises users to use interceptor pairs on client & server. Client interceptor captures ip address in addition to login & sends that across to server interceptor pair.

    Custom LoginModule is driven by Web Service's . I can see earlier on call stack that hostName and protocol can be found in LoginContext:

    my.security.auth.spi.DatabaseServerLoginModule.login(DatabaseServerLoginModule.java:116)

    org.apache.tomcat.util.net.JIoEndpoint$Worker.run(JIoEndpoint.java:446)
    java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:619)

    Now I am trying to create LoginContext in CustomLoginModule::initialize(Subject subject, CallbackHandler callbackHandler,
    Map sharedState, Map options)
    {
    super.initialize(subject, callbackHandler, sharedState, options);
    this.subject = subject;
    try {
    loginContext = new LoginContext("MySP", subject, callbackHandler);
    } catch (LoginException ex) {
    Logger.getLogger(DatabaseServerLoginModule.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
    }

    But it does not give client ip.

    Maybe there is some abstraction on Jboss Remote for getting client ip ?

    A (maybe not very good) way for getting client ip

    Thread.currentThread().getName()

    Name string is in format "someworkerthreadname#[127.0.0.1:1867]"

    and parse that string

    Have you succeeded to retrieve client IP on login module? I mean in normal API way, other then parsing thread name :)

    As in FAQ, maybe u can get access to the servlet req in the LM and get the IP
