      Description

      In Maven 1.x, when deploying an artifact to the repository via scp, leaving out the username and password information let me deploy to an internal repository using the currently logged in username and any Kerberos credentials that user may currently have.

      The wagon appears to only support password or key based ssh authentication. If I leave all username/password information out of settings.xml, I am forced to enter a password (which is echoed to the screen!). Simply pressing enter to dismiss the password dialog doesn't "fall through" to using GSSAPI/Kerberos.

      From looking at the source, it appears that if a key is not specified, it defaults to password auth. Could an option be added to allow using any existing GSSAPI/Kerberos credentials?

      Thanks

        It would make a whole lot of sense to support Kerberos in general – not just for WAGON-SSH, but for all transports.
        We have Windows PCs for our developers in our entire network. They are completely AD integrated.
        Despite the fact that Java is supposedly platform independent, this platform independent - no: Platform connecting - technology is not supported.
