Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-4771) [OAuth 2] MAC Authorization Header is not parsed correctly
Date Tue, 22 Jan 2013 21:16:21 GMT


Sergey Beryozkin commented on CXF-4771:

I've confirmed splitting the headers by default is not going to be portable - I'll keep that
option but the default approach will be to return the actual complete string value - it will
fix this issue along the way too, thanks

> I'm trying to implement MAC authorization on my OAuth 2.0 server.  I use OAuthClientUtils#createAuthorizationHeader()
to create an authorization header that, on the wire, looks something like this:
> Authorization:  MAC id="55aa32664c6e1ae9eea4f8d2a6b6fe3",nonce="bMIaTnH+yw7daK6augoW9waPBhQ=",mac="xMgBytGHEyVjLk0Bea5Sa6jfMdUvvrCWJhlL95rtNHs=",ts="1358796727285",
> There is a minor problem with this -- the trailing comma should be eliminated.
> The major problem, though, is when the server tries to parse this (AuthorizationUtils#getAuthorizationParts()).
 The call to mc.getHttpHeaders().getRequestHeader("Authorization") returns five header values
instead of one.  It appears to be parsing on both spaces and commas.  This causes the remaining
logic to never parse the MAC token.
