[kepler-dev] Kepler + authentication

Hello all,

I have following question. How can I introduce authentication mechanism 
into Kepler (if it is possible at all). I can see that Kepler provides 
some sort of authentication for Ecogrid (Tools -> Ecogrid Authentication).

Is it possible to automatically add different type of authentication?

What I want to achieve is to have a single point authentication for the 
work-flow. I want to generate grid-proxy basing on proxy, key and 
password. I'd like to provide Kepler with these information in a "login 
dialog" way. Then, I'd like to have an access to this data through the 
parameters. Is it possible to achieve?

Another question is. Is it possible to present user with dialog (during 
work-flow execution) that will allow to enter password? This means that 
text field must hash entered text (preferably with "*").

Thanks in advance for the answer
