Apache module mod_ntlm
Important noticeI don't have easy access to a computer (let alone a development machine) anymore, so unfortunately I cannot do any further work on this module.
Any emails I receive in connection with mod_ntlm or mod_auth_sspi will not be read. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
OverviewMod_ntlm is stable and no longer maintained - version 1.3 is the latest release, and no more are expected. mod_auth_sspi is the version of mod_ntlm for Apache-2.0.
Mod_ntlm is a module written for the Windows NT version of Apache. It allows Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 3 and up), and Windows clients that use the WININET API to authenticate using the NTLM authentication protocol. From the server's side, it allows an Apache/NT web server to use the existing NT security infrastructure.
Mod_ntlm does user access restrictions just like the rest of Apache. That is, you put a require directive into the appropriate .htaccess or <Directory> configuration section, and authentication will be performed.
Mod_ntlm is probably most useful in intranet situations. Authentication can happen transparently, using the user's current username and password. However, basic authentication is still supported - it is possible to authenticate against NT or a basic auth file.
Additionally, to compile from source the following are required:
Current version: 1.3
