Subject [jira] Created: (HTTPCLIENT-1018) Support Spnego Authentication using Kerberos

Support Spnego Authentication using Kerberos

                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1018
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1018
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: HttpAuth
            Reporter: Christian Schneider

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.
