These are all possible authentication modes when
connecting to restricted web resource, either on WEB server
or on Proxy server.
AuthNone value means no
authentication will be used or sent by wodHttpDLX. When
AuthBasic is used, wodHttpDLX will
send base64 encoded information contained in Login and
Password (or ProxyLogin and ProxyPassword) properties.
AuthNTLM mode sends sequence of
challenges/respones with the (proxy) server in order to
authenticate with the (proxy) server, but without ever
sending plaintext password over insecure network.
AuthDigest is used mostly with
WebDAV servers. This type sends only one
challenge/response, and password is never sent to the
server in cleartext. Using AuthWindowsIntegrated currently logged in
Windows user login and password will be used for NTLM authentication.
AuthAutomatic mode will try to
get resource from the WEB without any authentication
information sent. If request fails, it will then re-request
it using stronger authentication mode available by the
server (Digest, then NTLM , then Basic).
