Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-919) NTLM implementation lacks support for NTLMv1, NTLMv2, and NTLM2 Session forms of NTLM
Date Wed, 24 Feb 2010 09:18:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-919?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12837709#action_12837709

Karl Wright commented on HTTPCLIENT-919:

Hi all,

Lack of native NTLM support in 4.x also may block Lucene Connector Framework from using 4.x.
 This is because many of its connectors require NTLM.  HttpClient 4.x's solution requires
jcifs, and jcifs is a LGPL-licensed component, which means we cannot distribute it according
to Apache rules.

The submitted patch has been granted to ASF officially to Apache as part of the software grant
for LCF, and thus it can form the basis of a full featured NTLM implementation in HttpClient,
which we feel would be highly desirable for the above reason.

> 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.
