Subject: About XMPP authentication
Hi Alex. I have a question about XMPP authentication. I'm trying to develope a system which everyone can login with his/her JID. Is that possible if i use XMPP authentication??

What do i have to do with the @gmail.com username/password set entered in myClient to determine if that was the correct @gmail.com username/password??

Whenever a XMPP client do an authentication to a XMPP server (ex: @gmail.com), does the username/password set have to be sent directly to @gmail.com or
could this be?

         username/password               username/password
myClient    ---->       @myserver.org        --->       @gmail.com
               <----                                   <---
             login result                          login result

Hello,

Are you developing a HTTP authentication system?
When yes, yes its possible to authenticate with XMPP to webpages or authenticate against a XMPP server.
Please take a look at the following JEPS:


i would say JEP-0070 ist the way to go. There is also a Google Summer of code project on that right now.
see: http://wiki.jabber.org/index.php/HTTP-Auth_suite
