All the required authentication mechanism will be provided by the Tomcat server Itself. No need to download any other things.

You also need to declare in DD that you are using form based authentication as following

<login-config>
<auth-method>FORM</auth-method>
<form-login-config>
<form-login-page>/loginPage.html</form-login-page>
<form-error-page>/loginError.html</form-error-page>
</form-login-config>
</login-config>
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
