The pass-through (passthru) subsystem can be used to replace the
standard user database with a Windows server/domain controller, or list of servers, to
authenticate users accessing Alfresco Content Services. This saves having to create user accounts within Alfresco Content Services.
The subsystem also supports optional NTLM Single Sign-On (SSO) functions for WebDav and Alfresco Share, and direct CIFS
authentication for the CIFS server. This method of authentication is much more secure than
simple LDAP-based authentication or form-based authentication.
Note: Only NTLM v1 is supported in this configuration. As NTLM v2 has been designed to avoid
"man-in-the-middle" attacks, it would be impossible to use in this pass through style.
