The purpose of this module is to perform a user authentication via
Mircosofts 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
mod_ntlm, which can be found at

The main advantage of the Perl implementaion is, that it can be easily
extented to verfiy the user/password against other sources than a
windows domain controller. The default implementaion is to go to
the domain controller for the given domain and verify the user. If
you want to verify the user against another source, you 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.
