      Description

      My experience with authentication modules is limited to just ShibAuthentication.java, but using that module in a stack with the simple/default PasswordAuthentication.java module, a problem comes up if a user who should be using Shib instead self-registers via the simple/password authentication module. This self-created ePerson record has the net effect of disabling any authorizations that ShibAuthentication.java, or any other authentication module, might create automatically, typically via a getSpecialGroups method. See also DS-994 for an early foray into addressing this issue.
