Subject: LWP should recalculate digest auth after redirects
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.2k
Scenario 1) client requests / on port 80 2) server replies HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently Location: http://secure.example/Team 3) client request /Team 4) server replies with 401 challenge (digest auth) 5) client requests /Team again, with auth 6) server replies HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently Location: http://secure.example/Team/ 7) client requests /Team/, with same auth headers However, the digest authentication response is calculated based (among other things) on the requested URI, so the response for /Team and /Team/ are different. Running % GET -uUsSx returns [...] GET Authorization: Digest username="myusername", realm="REALMNAME", qop="auth", algorithm="MD5", uri="/Team", nonce=[...] and so... 8) server say "thanks, but no thanks". 400 Bad Request logs say: [Mon Jan 22 01:16:12 2007] [error] [client] Digest: uri mismatch - </Team> does not match request-uri </Team/> LWP (and, I suppose, LWP::Authen::Digest) should calculate the digest based on the new URI after a redirect.
