The purpose of this module is to perform a user authentication via
NTLM protocol. This protocol is supported by all versions of the Internet
Explorer and is mainly usefull for intranets. Depending on your preferences
setting IE will supply your windows logon credentials to the web server
when the server asks for NTLM authentication. This saves the user to type in
his/her password again.

A lot of ideas and information are taken from the similar Apache module
which can be found at

The main advantage of the Perl implementaion is, that it can be easily
to verfiy the user/password against other sources than a windows domain
The default implementaion is to go to the domain controller for the given
and verify the user. If you want to verify the user against another source,
can inherit from Apache::AuthenNTLM and override it's methods.

To support users that aren't using Internet Explorer, Apache::AuthenNTLM can
also perform basic authentication depending on it's configuration.
