The Http Service calls this method prior to servicing the specified request. This method controls whether the request is processed in the normal manner or an error is returned.
If the request requires authentication and the Authorization header in
the request is missing or not acceptable, then this method should set the
WWW-Authenticate header in the response object, set the status in the
response object to Unauthorized(401) and return

If the request requires a secure connection and the
method in the request does not return 'https' or some other acceptable
secure protocol, then this method should set the status in the response
object to Forbidden(403) and return
When this method returns
false, the Http Service will send
the response back to the client, thereby completing the request. When
this method returns
true, the Http Service will proceed with
servicing the request.
If the specified request has been authenticated, this method must set the
AUTHENTICATION_TYPE request attribute to the type of
authentication used, and the
REMOTE_USER request attribute to
the remote user (request attributes are set using the
setAttribute method on the request). If this method does not
perform any authentication, it must not set these attributes.
If the authenticated user is also authorized to access certain resources,
