alfrescoNtlm is the subsystem
configured by default in the Alfresco
authentication chain. It performs authentication based on user and password
information stored in the Alfresco repository.
It is capable of supporting both form-based login and NTLM-based Single
Sign-On (SSO), as well as providing authentication for the CIFS server.
Note: The NTLM SSO functions are disabled by default, which means there
are no assumptions about the availability of a Windows domain. You can
activate SSO with a single property, without any changes to the
web.xml file or further file server
