Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1573) How do I get NTLM to use current user credentials/token?
Date Tue, 21 Oct 2014 21:17:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1573?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14179118#comment-14179118

Michael Osipov commented on HTTPCLIENT-1573:

[~PeterBinney], my recommendation, you should rather switch to Kerberos which is default on
Windows and is a standards protocol. Discussion should always go to the users mailing list.
Although the winclient-auth module is very nice, it has not reached production quality. I
have made a few short tests and I wasn't completely satisfied.

> I want to extend a website monitoring application to support sites using NTLM (aka: Windows
> The application is written in Java and uses the HTTPClient/Core 4.2 package, running
against sites using basic HTTP authentication and client certificates.
> It runs on Windows servers and I would like it to poll NTLM-secured sites too, using
the credentials of the current Windows user - NOT having to supply a name&password to
the application.
> I have tried upgrading to both 4.3 and 4.4-beta1 (with httpclient-win-4.4-beta1.jar).
> But I cannot find any way to get the HttpClientBuilder/CloseableHttpClient to use the
current user's windows persona.
> Is there a way to do this, or will I have to revert to plan B which is to convert the
app to .NET (which I would hate to do!).
