The auth validator leverages authentication and role-permission-based authorization for you.
ColdBox security ships with this validator that knows how to talk to the authentication service and validate authentication and authorization via permissions and roles. All you need to do is use the WireBox ID of AuthValidator@cbsecurity in your validator setting:
AuthValidator is the default validator for ColdBox Security
The configured authentication service must adhere to our IAuthService interface and the User object must adhere to the IAuthUser interface.
Remember that a validator can exist globally and on a per ColdBox Module level.
