Which Windows Login mechanisms are supported by QualysGuard Authenticated Windows scanning?



If credentials are provided for QualysGuard Authenticated Windows scanning, then QualysGuard establishes trusted login sessions, using NTLM and NTLMSSP (versions 1 and 2) with SPNEGO or Kerberos, with or without signing.


This means QualysGuard supports all login mechanisms currently implemented in Windows (including transitive trusts within Active Directory), and automatically negotiates the highest security level.
