Web Authenthication?

HI there,
I am working as a Web tester and particularly interested in different mechanism of authenthication that can be used in the web environment e.g NTLM, Session cookies auth, etc. Especially I am looking for a paper that can describe the good and the bad of each of authenthication + any vulnerability or weakness of the authenthication.

Perhaps, if you could point me to a right paper / direction that would be great!

This site is full of great information

Generally the weakness for any website is packet sniffing and potentially cookie hijacking (especially with WiFi)  You can search the web for more about those techniques.
