It looks like this part is unimplemented in Swazoo, OTOH it seems pretty
easy to do (the HTTPAuthenticationChallenge class is missing).  (swazoo
list CCed).

I think what is often done, is to firewall Swazoo, and instead use
Apache as a proxy server.  You then configure Apache to block
/seaside/config and to use it, you access Swazoo directly (because of
the firewall, that would be possible only within some kind of DMZ).

If you want this, you have to make the root entry point the
WAApplication instead of using a WADispatcher as Seaside does by default.

click Override in decoration classes. They are not necessary, but very
useful.

HTTP Authentication in Swazoo (was Seaside, some questions...)

Janko Mivšek
Hi guys,

Swazoo 1 has a workable HTTP Authentication-Basic implemented and used
in practice, while Digest one was almost implemented. Due to lack of
time it was not ported to a new request framework in Swazoo 2, but it
shouldn't be hard to do now.

If someone is interested, you can count on all my support, we also need
it in Aida/Web to put back to live its WebDAV support, which needs HTTP
Authentication too.

Best regards
Janko
