Yeah, your login page is secured. So someone who isn't logged in won't get to any page, including the login page, so you can't even login to login.

So when you go to a page that is secured and you are not logged in, one of the SecurityFilters the Authorization one throws an AccessDeniedException. The ExceptionFilter, then tries to redirect to the login page. If no login page is defined it just bubbles up the access denied page.
