node-ntlm-auth: NTLM session response authentication client
This library enables communication with an NTLM server using the session response protocol.
NTLM HTTP Authentication headers are Base64-encoded packed structures of three basic varieties. Type 1 & 3 are sent from the client to the server, and Type 2 is from server to client.
Because of how node.js handles keep-alive, the requests are handled by this library, as long as the Type 1 message is provided. The Type 1 message can be generated using node-smbhash or a similar library.
A request is made by providing the host, path, authentication information, and the Type 1 message. The response by the server to the Type 3 message is the callback.
|options||http(s) request options (including hostname, path, etc.)|
|auth||authentication parameters (see example)|
|type1_msg||initial type 1 message (can usually be sniffed)|
|callback||function to parse the response object|
var ntlmRequest = ntlmRequest;;
This library is based off of python-ntlm http://code.google.com/p/python-ntlm/ As well as functions from node-smbhash https://github.com/jclulow/node-smbhash
