Kereberos authentication

Recommended Posts

Guest Prabhu

I am working on a project with the requirement to contact with RESTful APIs from a LabVIEW client. The server uses Kerberos authentication. I would like to know if this REST client can be used in there. If yes, do we have some examples?

Yes and no.

Yes, it's possible. You will need to write to the http request header a "Authorization: Negotiate [token]" instead of "Authorization: Basic" (for basic password authentication).

However (this is the "no" part), you probably will need to implement the security token handshaking protocol yourself -- I don't see (via googling) that anyone has done that.

See here for a high level overview. There's a more detailed, technical explanation of the process here

That's great to hear. Thanks for letting us know.

If you come up with a good solution, maybe you can share some details, so that other's can see how you did it.

Thanks!
