[GSS](6.4.z) HTTP Server used for management doesn't support non-ascii characters in BASIC authentication
Last modified: 2017-01-17 07:59:44 EST
Description of problem:
When using a password like 'test123!ü' different browsers generate the BASIC credentials string using different encodings resulting in failed authentication.
This causes issues when using management console with LDAP.
Same issue in Undertow: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/UNDERTOW-595 fixed in https://github.com/spyrkob/undertow/commit/98fe959a4f4cde414c36b268734e22421f170460
Note this issue is to track fixes in httpserver component. The changes to EAP code will be tracked in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1270708
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up LDAP authentication with user admin identified by 'test123!ü'
2. In Firefox go to http://localhost:9990 and try to authenticate

This bug was accidentally moved from POST to MODIFIED via an error in automation, please see firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions
Verified with EAP 6.4.10.CP.CR2;
Note: For browsers that use ISO-8859-1, like Firefox , the fix won't work for characters outside of ISO-8859-1 (chinese, japanase, russian etc.).
Retroactively bulk-closing issues from released EAP 6.4 cummulative patches.
