Subject Tomcat NTLM Authentication
Date Sun, 06 Mar 2011 12:24:12 GMT
Hey,

I want to change the way that tomcat authenticates to the DB of our
application, from SQL authentication to Windows authentication.
We use Tomcat 6.0.29 , and the user and password to connect to the DB is
specified in clear text in the xml configuration file under the folder
conf/catalina/localhost.
My goal is to remove the user and password from the xml file, and letting
the tomcat windows service run with a domain user that has permissions to
the DB.

when I searched for a solutions for what i'm trying to do, i got to this
page-
http://wiki.apache.org/tomcat/FAQ/Windows#Q4

Which suggest these methods:
-Waffle/JNA
-Tomcat SPNEGO
-SPNEGO SF
-Jespa (commercial)
-Tomcat IIS Connector
-Samba JCIFs (obsolete, no NTLMv2)

Are one of these methods suit for what I'm trying to do?
When reading about Tomcat SPNEGO, it says that users working on a windows
client OS and IE or Firefox, can be silently authenticated (SSO) to a Tomcat
running on a windows server via NTLM or kerberos. It doesn't seem to be what
I aim for, since tomcat users are not interest me, only the tomcat windows
service and how it connects to the DB

Your help would be appreciated :]

Thanks
Hila
