Subject [jira] Created: (WAGONSSH-35) Support Kerberos authentication (at least for SshExternal)
Date Wed, 11 Jan 2006 04:21:01 GMT
Support Kerberos authentication (at least for SshExternal)

         Key: WAGONSSH-35
     Project: wagon-ssh
        Type: Wish

 Environment: Mac OS X 10.4
    Reporter: Matthew Willis

In Maven 1.x, when deploying an artifact to the repository via scp, leaving out the username
and password information let me deploy to an internal repository using the currently logged
in username and any Kerberos credentials that user may currently have.

The wagon appears to only support password or key based ssh authentication. If I leave all
username/password information out of settings.xml, I am forced to enter a password (which
is echoed to the screen!). Simply pressing enter to dismiss the password dialog doesn't "fall
through" to using GSSAPI/Kerberos.

>From looking at the source, it appears that if a key is not specified, it defaults to
password auth. Could an option be added to allow using any existing GSSAPI/Kerberos credentials?
