Moodle: SMB Web Client - HTTPS...
I've installed Moodle, SMB Web Client, and the proper certificate for secure access.
I've set form authentication for SMB Web Client, which I believe means that the username/password is encrypted before being passed to the remote server... however, is there anyway to for SMB Web Client to operate over HTTPS, so that the data transferred is also encrypted?
It probably wouldn't be an issue for students, but I imagine it might be more problematic for teaching staff, where the information transmitted might be confidential.
windows share web client - https
I'm the author of windows share web client.
We use the ldapcapture auth plugin to pass the credentials on to the windows share web client block.
This means that you can have a https login for your site and then not have to worry about the credentials being sent cleartext over http later.
The credentials are fed through to smbclient at the OS level so they never touch http.
This is the recommended method.
