Synopsis :

Some web pages require authentication.

Description :

The remote web server requires HTTP authentication for the following
pages. Several authentication schemes are available :

- Basic is the simplest but the credential are sent in
clear text.

- NTLM provides an SSO in MS environment, but it cannot be
used on both the proxy and the web server. It is also
weaker than Digest.

- Digest is a cryptographically strong scheme. Credentials
are never sent in clear text. They may still be cracked
by a dictionary attack though.
