Class GSSAPIAuthenticationMechanism

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class GSSAPIAuthenticationMechanism
    extends Object
    implements AuthenticationMechanism
    AuthenticationMechanism for GSSAPI / SPNEGO based authentication.

    GSSAPI authentication is associated with the HTTP connection, as long as a connection is being re-used allow the authentication state to be re-used.

    TODO - May consider an option to allow it to also be associated with the underlying session but that has it's own risks so would need to come with a warning.
