To all the good souls that happen to know NTLM and Rails…
- I’m looking for server code to extract credentials through NTLM dialog
with the client (IE)
- I found nothing usable/useful (as they both implement the client side
- rubyntlm on rubyforge
- lib ntlm-ruby by Jonathan Bastien-Filiatrau
Version 1 of an application I’ve just finished requires the client
enters a login and password. As this is a closed application in a pure
Windows environment and everybody uses IE, I was asked to use SSO to
avoid this step, as the users are already logged in at this stage.
The way I understand it, I need my Rails app to implement the server
side of the NTLM handshake to have IE send it the user’s login and
Unfortunately, all the ruby code and samples I’ve found -see above ref.-
implement the client side of the handshake (meaning: the ruby
application is the client trying to reach a NTLM savvy server).
Has anybody already solved this problem in Rails?
Many thanks in advance.
