Please find below the scenario
1. User authenticated using FORM base authentication while accessing portal application.
2. Now user wants to access another application (i.e. mywebapp) which has reference on Portal page.
3. Web application work on Spring security and now i want to take the third application under SSO umbreala.
4. Web application provider ask me to pass few HTTP headers to his application.
