Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45832] New: add DIGEST authentication support to Ant tasks
Date Thu, 18 Sep 2008 12:17:42 GMT

           Summary: add DIGEST authentication support to Ant tasks
           Product: Tomcat 6
           Version: 6.0.18
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: Catalina

It would be useful if the Catalina Ant tasks supported HTTP Digest
authentication, in addition to Basic authentication. This is convenient if one
already has a digest-based security realm and doesn't want to maintain an extra
 tomcat-users.xml file. (And Basic authentication is terribly insecure.)

Currently the AbstractCatalinaTask [1] just performs Basic authentication:

  // Set up an authorization header with our credentials
  String input = username + ":" + password;
  String output = new String(Base64.encode(input.getBytes()));
                           "Basic " + output);
