Announcing libruby-ntlm

This Saturday, I spent some time coding an NTLM authentication module.
It
can be found on my blog at
http://x2a.org/2006/01/29/update-on-schools-internet-access-libntlm-ruby/.

I am announcing this here in the hope that somebody else might find this
useful. I am also wondering if there are any patent concerns over NTLM
authentication; if somebody could enlighten me, I would appreciate it
very
much.

Also, I have not found any clean way to integrate NTLM authentication in
Net::HTTP since the way ISA does authentication is pretty
ugly/non-standard.

Thank you for your time,
Jonathan

Intresting, I’ll test out this library on the win2k3 servers. Intresting
this
library would help with some apps which I don’t want to create a
separate
passwd file each time.

Could this be used with WEBrick to provide a server using NTML
authentication on Linux?

It only acts as an authentication client for now, I do not plan on
making
it an authentication provider, as there are standard authentication
protocols available. If you want to add that functionality, you have
some
code in there that may help you and I am willing to accept patches.

Good luck,
Jonathan
