Subject [jira] [Updated] (HTTPCLIENT-1394) Native windows Negotiate/NTLM via JNA
Date Tue, 27 Aug 2013 21:43:51 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1394?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Ryan McKinley updated HTTPCLIENT-1394:

    Attachment: HTTPCLIENT-1394-jna.patch

Here is a patch adding a WindowsNegotiateScheme that uses JNA.

Take a look and let me know what you guys think.

Big open questions:
1. What should we do with Credentials?  This adds a singleton CurrentUserCredentials, but
it is not really used

2. Testing?  are there useful tests we can add without a server side implementation?  For
the existing NTLM, i see assertions for the engine, but not the schema.  For Kerberose and
SPNego I don't see anything.

3. Default configuration?  This implementation obviously needs to prove itself, but should
this be the default on windows rather than SPNegoSchemeFactory?

> HttpClient has made great progress in supporting NTLM and Negotiate, but the setup often
requires considerable configuration.  Using native calls, we can authenticate the current
logged in user directly via windows with no configuration.
