HTTP Digest Authentication

Postby craigadh » 09 Dec 2009, 13:26

Hi,

I'm looking at moving some of our product lines over to POCO and I'm trying to figure out if it supports HTTP Digest Access Authentication as a HTTP Client. I've found the HTTPBasicCredentials class but it isn't clear from the documentation whether this can only be used with Basic Access Authentication.

To be clear, what I need to do is connect to HTTP (not HTTPS) servers and complete a Digest Access Authentication challenge. Is this supported "out of the box" or would we have to provide our own implementation?

Thanks,

Craig.

Currently, digest auth is not supported out of the box, but we are planning it for the next release.

Thanks for the prompt reply. Is there a timeframe for when the next release will be made (or that the code will be in SVN)?
