Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-4431) Add support for OAuth2 'mac' token type
Date Tue, 24 Jul 2012 23:07:34 GMT


Sergey Beryozkin commented on CXF-4431:

Here is an update to get aligned closer to the v5 draft:

Will merge to 2.6.2-SNAPSHOT tomorrow

Summary of what I did:
- updated the normalization code
- timestamp is still passed - via an 'ext' parameter - however it would make sense to get
the server code tolerable to the absence of it - will deal with it later.
- nonce is calculated based on the age of the client token, as per v5

I think it would be safe enough to resolve this JIRA without actually shipping a nonce implementation,
at least for 2.6.2, custom NonceVerifier can alway be used which is a good start. We can review
the option of shipping it post 2.6.2, once you tune it :-)

I won't have more time till 2.6.2 is out to deal with this issue - however please work with
the snapshot and test if possible,
you may also spot some bugs there. It's quote close but a bit of tuning will be needed.

use without SSL.
> OAuth2 specs out the 'mac' token type that requires request signing for authentication
using the access token. The spec is described here:
