Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-919) NTLM implementation lacks support for NTLMv1, NTLMv2, and NTLM2 Session forms of NTLM

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-919?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12922078#action_12922078

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

That's great news!

If the authentication architecture is at all similar, it should not take me too long to do
this.  The logic trickiness is in all the encryption, and perhaps in getting some DC's set
up with the proper switches for testing.  But I won't be able to start on it for a couple
of weeks at best.  But by then I am hoping to have procured access to my old testing environment
formerly at MetaCarta and now at qBase, so that I can verify the code.

If your time frame is too urgent for that, then by all means I urge you to go ahead.

> 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.
