Subject Re: JAAS DIGEST authentication Tomcat5.5.17
Date Tue, 02 May 2006 06:50:27 GMT
I think the pb is not due to DIGEST password format.
My JAAS LoginModule who is working with FORM and BASIC authentication is 
not called during DIGEST authentication.
I have inserted some traces in the authenticate, initialize and login 
methods of my LoginModule...and no traces are generated...
I'm thinking my LoginModule is never used by Tomcat wiht Digest 
authentication !!!

With DIGEST auth and digest="MD5" you need to make sure the passwords
are digested as per

If you want to use DIGEST and passwords stored in the realm are in plain
text you should not specify digest attribute for the realm.
