Subject: LWP::UserAgent: HTTP-Digest authentication fails if server uses realm with comma-char (',')
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 555b
If I try to request a ressource which requires HTTP-Digest authentication using a realm including a comma-charater (',') LWP::UserAgent fails, because it rewrites the challenge replacing all commas with semicolons. in request(): Show quoted text
> $challenge =~ tr/,/;/; # "," is used to separate auth-params!!
Probably it's uncommon to have a realm like "Unit, Organization", it's definitely RFC-conform. Since HTTP-Digest authentication uses the realm in it's hash LWP::UserAgent fails computing the correct hash, after altering the realm value. sandoz
