Date Mon, 11 Oct 2010 09:37:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-2773?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12919765#action_12919765

Douglas Jose commented on JCR-2773:

I haven't chose the components in this issue as the code is spread through several components
(namely jackrabbit-core, jackrabbit-jcr-server, jackrabbit-jcr-commons and jackrabbit-webapp).
I am not sure if I chose the best components and packages for the new classes in the attached

> HTTP digest authentication support
> ----------------------------------
>                 Key: JCR-2773
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-2773
>             Project: Jackrabbit Content Repository
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>            Reporter: Douglas Jose
>         Attachments: http-digest.patch
> I have extended Jackrabbit to allow HTTP digest authentication through WebDAV, as Windows
7 can't connect to a WebDAV repository using basic authentication.
> The implementation is based on Tomcat's source code (I have used it as a reference to
implement the same authentication handling in Jackrabbit). I hope that's not a problem.
> In order to enable the digest authentication, you need to:
> - Change the WebDAV servlet from 'org.apache.jackrabbit.j2ee.SimpleWebdavServlet' to
'org.apache.jackrabbit.j2ee.DigestWebdavServlet' in the web.xml file;
> - Change the LoginModule to 'org.apache.jackrabbit.core.security.simple.DigestLoginModule'
in the repository.xml file
> - Add the parameter 'passwordsFile' to the DigestLoginModule with the path of the passwords
> - Add to the passwords file created above the user id and the password digest. The utility
DigestPasswordUtil in the jackrabbit-jcr-commons project can be used to generate the entry
to be appended to the passwords file.
> java -cp target/jackrabbit-jcr-commons-2.2-SNAPSHOT.jar org.apache.jackrabbit.util.DigestPasswordUtil
user realm password
> The DigestLoginModule configuration is optional, I believe the DigestWebdavServlet should
work normally with the SimpleLoginModule which accepts any credentials.
