Securing Services using the Spring Framework on 10.2

I'm currently trying to use the spring security framework in order to provide the authentication and authorization for my organization's arcgis web services.  At the moment we use ldap to secure our services but our business requirements have us looking for a more robust alternative.
    I have tomcat on a redhat server that is currently running the web adaptor as well as a simple spring security project but I'm missing the part where I can make use of spring to secure the webservices.  The web adaptor is running at http://<web server name>/arcgis/rest/services while the spring security is running at http://<web server name>/sampleSpringSecurity.  The spring security does its job just fine for all paths that fall under sampleSpringSecurity, but that does me no good when it comes to securing the web adaptor.  I'm experienced with java but my exposure to spring has been limited and my experience with web adaptors is almost nonexistent.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,
