spring-webmvc-pac4j project is an easy and powerful security library for Spring Web MVC / Spring Boot web applications and web services. It supports authentication and authorization, but also logout and advanced features like session fixation and CSRF protection.
It's based on Java 8, Spring Web MVC 5 and on the pac4j security engine v5. It's available under the Apache 2 license.

A matcher defines whether the
SecurityInterceptor must be applied and can be used for additional web processing
SecurityInterceptor protects an url by checking that the user is authenticated and that the authorizations are valid, according to the clients and authorizers configuration. If the user is not authenticated, it performs authentication for direct clients or starts the login process for indirect clients
CallbackController finishes the login process for an indirect client
LogoutController logs out the user from the application and triggers the logout at the identity provider level
JEEContext and the
ProfileManager components can be injected
@RequireAllRoles annotations check the user roles.
The demo webapps for Spring Web MVC without Spring Boot: spring-webmvc-pac4j-demo or with Spring Boot: spring-webmvc-pac4j-boot-demo are available for tests and implement many authentication mechanisms: Facebook, Twitter, form, basic auth, CAS, SAML, OpenID Connect, JWT...
