Subject Re: SPNEGO/NEGOTIATE implementation for Apache Geronimo
Date Mon, 08 Feb 2010 13:24:01 GMT
Dear Developers,

I have successfully developed a patch which enables spnego authentication in
Tomcat. This patch also enables fallback in case Spnego authentication
fails. Can you kindly review and provide comments on the attached patch.
Here is the link for the bug raised in b'zilla (
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=48685).

Thanks
Ashish
