Chapter 8. ColdFusion Security Options > ColdFusion Security Framework

ColdFusion Security Framework

Besides the operating system and Web server security services, administrators also have ColdFusion's security framework available to them. The migration to the Java platform means a change in ColdFusion's security infrastructure. ColdFusion now leverages the JAAS (Java Authentication and Authorization Service).

NOTE

ColdFusion MX introduced a new security framework that completely replaced the Advanced Security system of previous versions. As a result, the following tags and functions are obsolete and will not work in ColdFusion MX: <cfauthenticate>, <cfimpersonate>, AuthenticatedContext(), AuthenticatedUser(), IsAuthenticated(), IsAuthorized(), and IsProtected().However, ColdFusion MX 7 will allow you to create user-defined functions (UDFs) with the same name as these obsolete security functions.
