using NTLM aythentication for j2ee application deployed on WAS

Hi,

My query is there any particula configuration required to be done to make availble the NT Credentials example username and password in HttpRequest object, similar to setting that are to be done in Apache. I need to access username and password of user and authenticate using the same for the application he is accessing. By certain settings Apache makes it possible to access the username and password through request.getRemoteUser() which would then passed to my application to authenticate it against the applications list of users.

Is there any specific setting required in WAS?

    Umm, Not sure if thats possible.

    Are you sure you want your Apache to be able to get username/pwd .... the J2EE can get that from the ADS already

      Hi,

      NTLM authentication is not supported by SAP AS Java. But you can user the Pluggable Authentication Mechanism implementing your own Login Module that handles the NTLM handshake.

      Alternatively, you could configure SPNego authentication. It is supported by default.

      Kind regards,
