The NTLM over HTTP is fundamentally broken in it's design and should
never have seen the light. A classical "do it our way without regards
to standards" invention by Microsoft.

The exact same thing (automatic single sign on, without risking the
users private password) is fully possible to do with Digest MD5-sess
authentication, and I wish browser and OS vendors would see the light
and do so.

Donations welcome if you consider my Free Squid support helpful.
If you need commercial Squid support or cost effective Squid or
firewall appliances please refer to MARA Systems AB, Sweden,
