   23    * An <b>Authenticator</b> is a component (usually a Valve or Container) that
   24    * provides some sort of authentication service.  The interface itself has no
   25    * functional significance,  but is used as a tagging mechanism so that other
   26    * components can detect the presence (via an "instanceof Authenticator" test)
   27    * of an already configured authentication service.
