That's quite "hacking" the security models JBoss is using, since you're
doing all the authentication outside the model (NTLM Filter).
>From my experience with JBoss and Tomcat security models, I believe the
safest thing for you would be to incorporate the Filter as a Tomcat
Authenticator / JBoss Login Module combo.
