The AMI docs include an intriguing action called
Challenge, but it doesn’t make it clear what this is for, or even what will be returned.
After some hunting around, I found this rather old description of how to do challenge/response authentication for AMI.
This seems like a great idea, particularly for unencrypted AMI connections, so I have added it to Seaskirt.
My question is: why isn’t this documented in the official Asterisk wiki somewhere? The docs for the
Login action give no hint of the extra options available.
