The actual implementation adds security to the WMS protocol.
OpenGIS Web Map Service (WMS) implementation specification does not currently cover security aspects to control access to data based on layers, attribute or geometry criteria. Some vendors have implemented access control but it doesn't usually work with plain WMS client.
This implementation is a software solution to control access to WMS data, which works transparently with any existing WMS compliant client, with a SSL tunneling system between server and client.
While other approaches exist for securing WMS, this one has the following advantages:
A White Paper document introduces the architecture if you want a general introduction to the framework.
