What happen before: execution of servlet filters or BASIC HTTP authentication???

I assume authentication is the one specified declaratively in web.xml
Can I rely on the user (request.getRemoteUser()) when request is in between filter executions???

The specs are vague. In practice, though, I think most servers perform authentication before filtering.
