Subject AW: WG: [server] writing my own authenticator
Date Thu, 16 Jun 2005 08:07:18 GMT

What I'm trying to implemnt, is too get several attributes only passed to known hosts. At
the next step, I'd like to pass some attributes only to the client if he uses a secure connection.

So I could use the clients hostname or IP and if he is using a secure protocol like SSL or

I've learned, that the in big companies logins and passwords to systems spread like fire (i.e.
when programmers begin another project), but in a well secured network it is not quite as
easy to use the IP of another server. Or at least, when i have an IP I cant track down, who
accesses my systems.

IMHO to these reasons a principal and credentials is not enough too authenticate somebody.

I think in BindRequest ProtocolSession.getTransportType() and ProtocolSession.getRemoteAdress
should be stored in the context. When you have no time to do this, perhaps I could do this
tomorrow from home, because my svn plugin cannot use a proxy. But to be honest, I'd never
checked some source in or changed one of your projects, so I'm a little nervous about that.
