Although Web servers can perform user authentication and coarse-grained authorization checking for applications, developers of Web services and service-oriented architectures (SOAs) often must write custom code to restrict access to certain features of their system, or customize the behavior or appearance, based on the identity of a user. Embedding authorization checking within an application is inflexible, prone to error, and increases its complexity.
