Hi, every one, When I do some exercise,I meet this question about HTTP: <=========================================== 5. Identify the authentication mechanisms that are built into the HTTP specification. (Select two) a Basic b Client-Cert c FORM d Digest e Client-Digest f HTTPS Answers: a and d ===========================================> My doubt is the answer d & f, as we know, not all the browers support Digest,so if it is "build in" HTTP,how this happen? I think the HTTPS should be right,since its similitude name.
According to what I understand, FORM based authentication is a convinience extension of BASIC that is provided by the Servlet Container. FORM internally uses BASIC authentication but provides you a wrapper to use a custom form. Please correct me if I am wrong!
