Subject [jira] [Commented] (CMIS-245) Support multiple server authentication types (Kerberos especially)
Date Sat, 10 Nov 2012 14:53:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CMIS-245?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13494705#comment-13494705

Andre-John Mas commented on CMIS-245:
-------------------------------------

At the company where I work, Kerberos is used for authentication, as well, via SPNEGO. 

The one thing I am wondering, and I haven't explored the chemistry code yet, is whether Kerberos
authentication should be handled by the HTTP client layer transparently? When I have time
I will explore this and let you know if I come up with anything useful.

> 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/
