additional authentication for HTTPServer

Postby paroga » 09 Dec 2009, 15:13

Are there any interessts for additional authentication methods for the HTTPServer?
I need Digest and NTLM. Digest can be implementet platformindependent, but this is not possible with NTLM. Is it possible to support NTLM only on windows or is this a requirement to get it into the offical release?

Platform-specific functionality already exists in POCO. Windows event log support would be an example.

Digest auth is planned for the near future. As for NTLM, this is best left to the application, or a helper library, as it does not really fit the way HTTP is supposed to work (its from Microsoft, what can you expect...)

To implement NTLM it is necessary to store some data in the context of the HTTPServerSession. Is it possible to extend the API to access _session of HTTPServerResponseImp or add HTTPServerSession as additional parameter for HTTPRequestHandlerFactory? I need to know which Requests belong to the same socket.

Hello! Is there any continued plan to add proxy authentication beyond Basic? NTLM or Kerberos would be terrific, but Digest would be acceptable: and should be fairly easy to add. Thank you!
