I would like to clarify some things.
First, I would like to apologize for any mis-representaiton due to a lack of proper explanation on my part.
My previous post was essentially true, that the username/password is being transmitted in clear text. However, it is
not in the URL as I previously claimed; after a closer look, it is in a post request. Either way, the fact remains
that it is still in the clear.
I tested this with the Ariba Buyer application. The Ariba Spend Management System is a collection of applications.
However, my understanding is that most, if not all, of the applicaitons in the suite utilize the same authentication
method. Maybe somebody from Ariba can clarify this particular issue.
For those of you who requested a sample of my packet capture, I will be sending it shortly.
