Digest authentication is a common authentication method that enables web servers to authenticate a user to his or her web browser. In this code pattern, I show you how to implement digest authentication in development tools that don’t include this authentication natively. IBM Integration Bus is one such tool, so I will use it as an example. After walking through the steps of this pattern, you will be able to apply similar logic to any development tools you are using that don’t have built-in digest authentication.
In this code pattern, learn how to build a service in IBM Integration Bus which can be exposed as a proxy to achieve digest authentication. We cover how digest authentication mechanism works in background and what logic needs to be built for a platform which doesn’t support digest authentication of its own. We will also learn how to expose the IBM Integration Bus service on an IBM Cloud Kubernetes cluster and consume it via a sample client. The sample application and client application is built on IBM Integration Bus and deployed on a Kubernetes node using a Docker image.
After completing the code pattern, you will understand how to:
Follow the detailed steps in the ReadMe to complete the pattern. Here is an overview of the steps you’ll take:
