Hi, we are trying to connect some HP 3d printers and the API they use requires Digest authentication. We would love to have that capability in the connectors.
" All requests to the HP Print Submission API must use HTTPS. Version 1.2 enforces client authentication - each API request must include HTTP Digest Auth headers (IETF RFC2617). Digest Auth credentials will be provided to each authorized client of the API privately.
- Any HTTPS requests that do not contain valid authentication headers will receive a 401 response code from the API.
- Any HTTP requests that do not contain valid authentication headers will be redirected to the HTTPS equivalent URI.
- Any HTTP requests that DO contain authentication headers (valid or not) will receive a 403 response code from the API. It is critical that client authentication headers are not sent in the clear to the printer API.
Important Note: By default, HP MJF printers ship from the factory with self-signed certificates. There will be a mechanism to add CA-signed certs using an HP tool sometime in the coming weeks, but for now clients MUST be able to deal with self-signed certificates when negotiating HTTPS connections.
