If you want to wrap the login form with a layout template, name the template Security_login.ss. You'll want to include the $Content variable (and $Form, I think) in that template.

The form elements for the login form are assembled by the current Authenticator. If you are using SilverStripe's default (MemberAuthenticator), the form is generated by sapphire\security\MemberLoginForm.php.

Hope this helps!

To get this to work I had to name my template file Security.ss instead of Security_login.ss. Security_login does not exist and the actual page is called Security and it has an action called login.

What version of SS are you using? Did you put the Security_login.ss file in templates/ or in templates/layout/?

The Security_login.ss belongs in the templates directory of your project folder (usually "mysite"). If you're using a themed site, it should be located in the appropriate themes directory.
I haven't tried it with a themed site yet, but it definitely works for a "non-themed" site.

Yes, a custom Security_login.ss works with themed sites, too.

FYI--related to what you're trying to do--there is/was a bug where the login form's contents sometimes would be in $Content and other times in $Form. See http://open.silverstripe.org/ticket/3750 for a fix.
