Support for SPNEGO mechansim in Java GSS ( Mustang feature 263 ).

Java GSS is a framework that can support multiple security mechanisms;
a way to negotiate a security mechanism underneath GSS-API is needed.
We need to implement SPNEGO (Simple and Protected GSS-API Negotiation
Mechanism) to provide this feature, as specified by IETF in RFC 2478.

SPNEGO is a pseudo GSS security mechanism to enable a client and server
to securely negotiate a common GSS security mechanism to be used.

Two new properties have been introducted:- 1) sun.security.spnego.msinterop - to support interoperability with MS 2) sun.security.spnego.debug - to enable debug Please see CCC for details: http://ccc.sfbay/6239635 This feature has been validated with support for SPNEGO in HTTP. In addition, have tested interoperability of Java SPNEGO with Solaris SPNEGO. ###@###.### 2005-04-22 00:53:47 GMT
