Siteminder can successfully authenticate the user and send the userid and the session id encapsulated in the headers in the request. However, JBoss EPP which is configured with same LDAP used by Siteminder can't authorize the authenticated user to view pages because the Siteminder SSO agent doesn't provide a password but only the userId and sessionId.
If the password is hard coded in the custom authenticator everything works fine.
