#1005 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Prompt for passwords or encryption keys if required and missing

Reported by: Josh Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: major Milestone: 2.0
Component: html5 Version: 0.15.x
Keywords: Cc: dennis.schridde@…


Since we cannot use POST request to tranfer information between the connect.html and index.html (because websockify's built in server does not support the POST method), the options for authentication and encryption are missing from the connection interface.

The index.html page needs to prompt for any missing passwords or encryption keys that are required for the connection to avoid having to send them between pages.

This would also very useful if starting a server with --html=on that uses authentication/encryption where we are expecting to navigate to index.html without going through the connection interface.

websockify won't support POST: https://github.com/kanaka/websockify/issues/188 and we're better off just using wss / https anyway (#1252).
