Fix Version/s: 1.2.0
Stateless clients would benefit from an authentication cache.
For example if a stateless client may make several authentication requests within a few seconds.
Ideally the cache timeouts would be different. For example i might want to sent the Authentication cache to 30 seconds, but the Authorization cache to longer.
(From previous email to Les)
I created a Realm that authenticates against a URL, if the user has
access. The problem is that we have a stateless client [maven2] that
connects to our server[Nexus], and needs to authenticate each time.
This means the same user needs to authenticate 9+ times in a few
seconds (for a single task).
