Date Thu, 21 Oct 2010 13:26:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1018?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12923435#action_12923435

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-1018:

HttpClient has built-in support for SPNEGO since version 4.1-alpha1. Am I missing something?

> Many bigger companies use Kerberos Authentication. When used on Webservers this usually
means that the server uses the Spnego Protocoll to negotiate with the client which authentication
to use. 
> So Httpclient should support the Spnego protocoll together with Kerberos authentication
to authenticate against this class of webservers.
> The spring security project with it´s kerberos extension already supports the spnego
and kerberos protocol on the server side. The source code shows how the authentication is
done on the server side and will surely help to implement the client part.
