Subject [jira] [Commented] (GUACAMOLE-29) Add support for requesting HTTP Basic Authentication
Date Sat, 07 Jan 2017 04:22:58 GMT


Nick Couchman commented on GUACAMOLE-29:

So, I took a look at the previous PR and the Guacamole source code has changed enough between
the PR and the Apache Incubator version that I decided just to rewrite it as an extension
module.  I have the initial stab out on Github if anyone wants to take a look and comment/criticize/contribute:

A couple of notes:
- I have yet to test this out in a Tomcat environment without a proxy in front of it.  I'll
try to get it tested out here, but I'm making the assumption that it works.
- If you're using a proxy you have to configure it to pass through REMOTE_USER (or your user-defined
header).  In Apache you can do this using the RequestHeader set configuration option.
- If you'd rather use a different header than REMOTE_USER, you can configure it via the
file and set the http-auth-header option.

> Some reverse proxies support SSO via HTTP Basic authentication if the server requests
it with 401 Unauthorized response.
> As Guacamole already reads Authorization header, it looks trivial to add
option such as "enable-http-basic-auth", to tell Guacamole to request HTTP Basic Authentication
> PR on its way :)
> Thanks!
