What authentication protocols are supported depends on the Neon library. Besides the two HTTP-authentication types (Basic and Digest) Neon supports the GSSAPI which allows all kinds of authentication.

But there are lots of authentication schemes and surely not all are supported by GSSAPI. The "Claims Based Authentication" probably isn't.

WebDAV almost ever is transported over TLS. In this case HTTP-Basic authentication is secure and highly interoperable. Server administrators should allow Basic authentication over TLS.

I'm facing issue with davfs2 when mounting a sharepoint webdav; I'm getting the error message davfs2 could not parse challenge.

The authentication method of Sharepoint is Claims Based Authentication

My davfs2 is working fine with nextcloud webdav.

Is this authentication method supported by davfs2 ?

Thanks in advance
