as i read, most proxy auth methods are sent in plain text, or just encoded to binaries which can be easly decoded. absolutely not secure.
what about smb_auth? how secure is it?
umm NTLM, it does not ask the user about for proxy auth coz IE will store user name and password in its memory some where. means one login is enough. but i dont want this because of two reasons:-
1- DansGuardian does not support NTLM as shown in its configuration page.
2- i want the user to be asked each time, because it can be that the user leaves his comptuer open after his logon. so it is better to be asked each time.
but what about security? NTML or smb_auth?
security is at the first place, if NTML is more secure than smb_auth, i'll use it. so please focus on this guys.
keep info comming
