So I am constructing a sharepoint demo environment for my company's product, and we are trying to demonstrate the advantages of using kerberos and the disadvantages of using NTLM. The sites are supposed to be configured so that when the web application uses NTLM, it prompts you for credentials everytime you move to a different site. The web application is made up of three sites, each with their own subsites. So when you move from site A to site B, I need it to ask you for your credentials. Right now all three sites are located under the same web application. Would this only be possible if they were located in separate web apps? I read somewhere that the default security boundary is the site collection, so i created three different site collections for each of the sites and their subsites but it still doesnt prompt me for credentials when I move from one site collection to the other. Unfortunately it wont be sufficient to change the browser settings because the demo users will be exploring the sites from many different browers (some safari, some chrome, some IE). Is there a way to implement the above-described security configuration just through sharepoint? Any advice would be greatly greatly greatly appreciated, I'm racing against the clock!

Thanks so much,
