Subject [jira] Commented: (CMIS-245) Support multiple server authentication types (Kerberos especially)
Date Tue, 22 Feb 2011 20:16:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CMIS-245?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12998017#comment-12998017
] 

Jeff Potts commented on CMIS-245:
---------------------------------

The library supports both username/password auth and Alfresco tickets for authentication (through
extra parameters passed when constructing the CmisClient object).

Is it possible that you could use the urllib2 auth system to handle authentication in your
own app, then retrieve a ticket, and then use that ticket to authenticate with cmislib?

> Many Alfresco installs use Kerberos for authentication.  cmislib should support this
authentication scheme and possibly others.
> There is a urllib2 auth system for Kerberos available: http://limedav.com/hg/urllib2_kerberos/
