NTLM (NT Lan Manager) connector module utilizes the Windows challenge/response authentication protocol to retrieve credentials from a Windows operating system and uses those credentials to log into Magnolia.

While this module logs in directly instead of going through JAAS, it does so by utilizing the Waffle Windows Authentication Framework. Waffle utilizes JAAS resulting in the need for the JAAS installation steps. Waffle's Servlet Negotiate Security Filter from the Waffle Framework was used for the implementation.

This module works in connection with the LDAP Connector module's AD authentication. Once SSO is enabled, only user accounts that exist in AD can be used to log into Magnolia. For this reason, there must be accounts with administrator rights in addition to the provided superuser account that exist in AD.
