WMS Digest Authentication - general properties

The WMS Digest Authentication plug-in uses hashed encryption to send user names, passwords, and realm information over the network. It is the preferred method for providing secure passwords over the Internet. The server only needs the realm the publishing point or server belongs to in order to obtain the correct decryption key; it does not need the user name or password. You can configure the following option for this plug-in.

Item Description
Realm Type the domain to which the publishing point or server belongs.

If you do not specify the realm, the user must provide the fully qualified domain name and the user name to obtain access to the server.
