NTLN authentication with active directory 2008


Just wanted to confirm if NTLN authentication(Basic or v2) works fine with Active Directory 2008 or not?

It is the first time I am working on Mcafee WSG. Previously I have worked on one of the competitor products and it do not support NTLM with active directory 2008. Hence we had to use Kerberos authentication which created a lot of issues.

Re: NTLN authentication with active directory 2008

Yes, it does.

From page 14.

Filtering users

     Authentication functions of the appliance filter users, using information from internal and external

     databases and methods such as NTLM, LDAP, RADIUS, Kerberos, and others.

From Chapter 8 on Authentication.

Standard authentication

     — You can configure authentication for users who send requests for web access under a standard protocol, such as HTTP, HTTPS, or FTP. When the authentication rule set of the default rule set system is enabled, user information is by default retrieved from an internal user database.You can change this setting and configure a different method, such as NTLM, LDAP, Kerberos, and others.

Also:  See table 8-5 on page 143 for more information on NTLM.
