      Description

      based on JCR 2355 we added a very simplistic way to indicate to the login module that the given credentials have
      been preauthenticated. as already stated in the original issue this poses a major security issue as it leaves the
      repository access untrusted.

      i would like to raise those security concern again and would therefore like to get rid of that hack in the long run.
      the suggested procedure:

      • deprecate the attribute (immediately)
      • log a warning if it is used (immediately)
      • document how to fix code that is currently relying on that attribute
      • remove support altogether for the next major release
