Authenticated RSS feeds

Question asked by simon on Mar 6, 2009
Hi Alfresco people,

I would like to repeat the Authenticated RSS question from Xerox. I know it should be possible to hack the system to have some basic HTTP authentication in the URL but this way too complicated for ordinary users. Here is our situation:

All folders need authentication (which rules out the "add guest to the space" thing) in an Enterprise environment. The "password in URL" solution from MikeH looks nice but feels like a bad solution. In my understanding this would send the username + password in clear text over the network, is that wat we want?

I downloaded Alfresco 3.0 SP1 and it seems the RSS system hasn't changed. Are there any plans in the roadmap for decent authenticated RSS support?

Thanks!
