SSL JNDI Realm for Tomcat Catalina

Using JNDI as an authentication realm for Tomcat is quite common. What's also quite common is communication with the server needs to happen over SSL. In production, certificates are not a problem. In non-production (and especially development) environments, expired, self-signed, and untrusted SSL certificates are the norm. This project is an JNDI Realm for Tomcat Catalina which is designed to accept any SSL certificate, basically bypassing all security provided by certificates. So only use in development environments.
