I am using Tomcat 5.5.17. I am trying to restrict my website from accessing the files inside a folder called conf. Does anyone knows how to block user on seeing any files in http://localhost/conf/

Thanks,

Thanks for your suggestion on Filter. However, I found out a way to setup security constraint in web.xml configuration file. That's easier.
