17:16 VictorBjelkholm Hey, quick question regarding REST. Let's say I have a user resource and blogpost resource. How would I make a move of a blogpost from user 1 to user 2 and being as "RESTful" as possible?
17:20 systmkor4 joined #rest
17:20 trygvis you make a service kind of resource that can perform such a request

18:09 ruibrito Hi people, if I decide to add a token to my service to authenticate the user, what is the best way to go about it? or it that not the best/easy way?
18:09 ruibrito token in the request parameters I mean
18:11 trygvis http has a build-in mechanism for authentication, why don't you use that?
18:12 ruibrito I am using JERSEY in my Java server, I cannt find good examples to help me
18:12 ruibrito trygvis: do you know of any examples to do http basic authentication?

18:43 pdurbin ruibrito: https://github.com/IQSS/dataverse/blob/master/src/main/java/edu/harvard/iq/dataverse/api/Search.java (uses Jersey/JAX-RS)
18:45 ruibrito pdurbin: thx for the link but I dont see where is the authentication part :?
18:45 pdurbin ruibrito: @QueryParam("key") String apiToken
18:47 ruibrito pdurbin: I see, but is it a good idea to send the key in the open? this is a GET request :?
18:47 pdurbin we'll only allow HTTPS
18:48 pdurbin would be terrible to send the key/token over plain HTTP. firesheep territory
18:48 ruibrito pdurbin: but for https I need to buy a SSL certificate correct? I know is more secure, but is not something i can buy right now
18:49 pdurbin you could self-sign but browsers and curl will give warnings
18:50 vincent__ joined #rest
18:50 ruibrito pdurbin: do you happen to know any other alternative? mybe during the brainstorming of the project you guys talk about some
18:52 VictorBjelkholm joined #rest
18:53 pdurbin ruibrito: you're looking for a way to send a token to a RESTful service in the clear without someone being able to sniff it (over open wifi or whatever)?
18:54 ruibrito pdurbin: frankly I am looking for a way I can authenticate the users requests, tokens seem to be the easiest way to accomplish that
18:59 pdurbin "Remove all the security complexity by sending all traffic to go over SSL (HTTPS)" http://www.thebuzzmedia.com/designing-a-secure-rest-api-without-oauth-authentication/
18:59 pdurbin I would just use HTTPS.
