Hi All

I'm trying to enable Kerberos SPNEGO with WebSphere My application is called Hyperion Workspace.....i've edited the web.xml and have protected urls.....

When i try to launch the protected url i can see the handshake happening in the trace log... In order to remove the login prompt in my application (Hyperion workspace) is providing me only limited options.....i beleive it is looking for some header information from the application server....(Websphere).

It accepts...$REMOTE_USER$ and $HTTP_USER$ for password it accepts $TRUSTEDPASS$ and $HTTP_PASSWORD$.

Can someone please let me know how the user information is passed from Websphere (i'm using SPNEGO)?

What headers are used for this?

I agree. Here's the link:
