Subject WSS4J and Kerberos signatures
Date Thu, 10 Nov 2005 23:55:17 GMT
Hello,

 

Sorry if this is a FAQ but I have been looking for answers to this high
and low and have not seen this on the list.

 

We are going to try and use Kerberos to authenticate users on our SOAP
server. What we envision is having the client send down the SOAP request
with a service ticket from a KDC. The server (Axis using WSS4J on
Tomcat) would then authenticate this user against said KDC. After
briefly looking at the documentation within the WSS4J code I think what
we would want to do is extend the WSDoAllHandler class (From the
org.apache.axis.security.handler package). Is this the right direction
to be going in? Has anybody looked at this? I'm relatively new to
Axis/WSS4J and some guidance would be awesome!

 

Thanks,

Laurence
