Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-52) API: FileTransfer - Basic Authentication
Date Sat, 16 Mar 2013 06:56:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-52?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13604138#comment-13604138

Shazron Abdullah commented on CB-52:
------------------------------------

[~agrieve] I believe NSURL will encode this from string, not sure (in any case when the URL
is passed through the bridge it's verbatim)

[~purplecabbage] yup, that is the method mentioned in the link in my first comment. I suppose
I could detect the user:pass and just create the appropriate header (since we have a base64
lib in native). We could do this in JavaScript automatically but I don't think Cordova includes
a js base64 function. As API implementors I'd rather provide them an easier path as provided
by the URL spec

> I'd appreciate an optional parameter for FileUploadOptions allowing to pass Basic Authentication
credentials. Combined with HTTPS, Basic Authentication can introduce minimal security when
upload files.
