Alfresco Patch to Authentication required for every API and protocol
Alfreso is requiring the same authentication scheme for every API and protocol form Alfresco 5.1. Since then, configuring authentication systems like Kerberos provokes that WebDav, SSP, CMIS and REST API cannot be used, as there is no way to configure a Kerberos client auth for any of them.
This patch, restores basic authentication to access to all these other protocols and preserves default one for the rest.
Compatibility The current version has been developed using Alfresco 5.1 and Alfresco SDK 2.2.0
Original Alfresco resources have been overwritten
