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
