Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-919) NTLM implementation lacks support for NTLMv1, NTLMv2, and NTLM2 Session forms of NTLM
Date Wed, 24 Feb 2010 11:56:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-919?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12837753#action_12837753

Karl Wright commented on HTTPCLIENT-919:
----------------------------------------

Please see comments regarding this issue I've attached to httpclient-917.

If we conclude that patents will be violated, I will indeed remove all NTLM implementations
from LCF, which would include even the upstream patch to httpclient-3.1 that was granted.
 However, the consequences are severe to the functionality of that component that we'd want
to verify this.

An NTLM implementation is also available for the Google connector framework, by the way, for
what it is worth.

> The current HttpClient implementation lacks support for all enhancements to NTLM after
Windows 95.  That includes NTLMv1, NTLMv2, and NTLM2 Session Response varieties of the protocol.
> This seriously impacts the usability of HttpClient in enterprise situations, which has
required the Lucene Connector Framework team to extend HttpClient to address the issue.
> I've attached a patch which contains the implementation used by LCF.
