Hi John,

There is an alternate version of "getLogger" that takes a string, which can
be anything and specifies the name of the logger. The form that takes a
class sets the logger's name to be the full class name.

final static Logger securityLogger =

You would want to make sure that ALL logging is turned on for the security
logger at all times.
