Subject [jira] Commented: (WSS-25) UsernameToken password is not checked
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2005 07:14:42 GMT
    [ ] 

Werner Dittmann commented on WSS-25:

Which password type do you use? If you use the digest password type
then the digest will be computed and checked. Other passwords are
not checked by the usernametoken handler but could be checked by
the password callback itself. This is because only the handling of digested
passwords is specified and thus can be processed within the handler.

> In the handleUsernameToken method in WSSecurityEngine class, the password returned by
the password handler is not compared against the password/digest from the UsernameToken. The
result is that any password will be accepted.
