Nick Couchman commented on GUACAMOLE-29:
----------------------------------------

And one more question, here.  Is the idea here that Guacamole throws a 401 
allowing an upstream server to authenticate, and then Guacamole accepts the 
authentication (similar to the Header authentication module)?  Or is the idea 
that Guacamole throws a 401 to trigger authentication, and that the 
authentication information provided gets passed back to Guacamole (perhaps to 
another underlying module) for validation?

> Some reverse proxies support SSO via HTTP Basic authentication if the server 
> requests it with 401 Unauthorized response.
> As Guacamole already reads Authorization header, it looks trivial to add 
> guacamole.properties option such as "enable-http-basic-auth", to tell 
> Guacamole to request HTTP Basic Authentication .
> PR on its way :)
> Thanks!
