Kerberos and NTLM
Posted on 2013-01-02
We are using Windows 2003 AD.
We have many different applications, and some need to authenticate to AD using either Kerberos or NTLM.
Could someone please clear a few things up for me -
i. Which one is the 'preferred' authentication mechanism - Kerboros or NTLM?
ii. MS products such as Outlook, SharePoint etc - which one do they use?
iii. If I used a product like Wireshark for example, is it possible to see which authentication mechanism was being used?
iv. Are there any benefits to using Kerberos over NTLM (or vice-versa)
v. Which one is the 'newer' protocol?
vi. Can their ports be changed?
