I don't think there is a tag like that. But why do want to protect your servlet from being accessed with your application?

first of all thanks for ur quick reply Vishnu...Here is some expl...

Some times I may want to protect some of my appl servlets(not all) from unauthorized persons.

Assume that my home page is having hyperlinks to
5 servlets, in which 3 of them deal with confidential matters...and other two are not. So I don't want to protect other two, so that anybody can access them. Now I want to authenticate/authorize the users who will try to access my 3 confidential servlets. What should I do?...

Can't you just check within your applicatoin if the user is authorized before allowing access?
