     278==== Application Filters ==== 
     279Each application secured with NDG Security is configured with a security filters.  These are applied in the Paste ini file for the application by setting it up as the app at the end of a WSGI pipeline fronted with Authentication and Authorisation filters: 
     280 
     281{{{ 
     282[pipeline:main] 
     283pipeline = AuthenticationFilter AuthorizationFilter myApp 
     284}}} 
     285 
     286The authentication filter is configured to invoke the OpenID Relying Party interface running in the Security Services application stack.  This prompts the user to enter the OpenID for their home site. 
     287 
     288The authorisation filter is configured with an XML policy file which sets which request URIs are to be secured.
