(Android™) HTTP Authentication (Basic, NTLM, Digest, Negotiate/Kerberos)

Demonstrates how to use HTTP authentication. Authentication can be added to any method that sends an HTTP request to the server, such as SynchronousRequest, QuickGetStr, PostXml, etc. To add authentication, simply set the Login and Password properties.

By default, Chilkat will use basic HTTP authentication, which sends the login/password clear-text over the connection. This is bad if SSL/TLS (i.e. HTTPS) is not used. However, if the connection is secure, there should be nothing wrong with using basic authentication.

Chilkat supports more secure authentication types as well, including Digest, NTLM, and Negotiate (which dynamically chooses between NTLM and Kerberos). To use Digest authentication, simply set the DigestAuth property = true. To use NTLM authentication, set the NtlmAuth property = true. Likewise, to use Negotiate authentication, set the NegotiateAuth property = true.

Important: Negotiate authentication is only supported for the Chilkat implementations that run on the Windows platform. This is because it is implemented internally using Microsoft's SSPI API. NTLM authentication however, is available for all supported operating systems because Chilkat implements NTLM directlly (i.e. does not use Microsoft SSPI for the underlying implementation.)
