Fields

Basic

Use Basic authentication for establishing a remote connection.

Credssp

Use CredSSP authentication for establishing a remote connection.

Default

Use the default authentication (as defined by the underlying protocol) for establishing a remote connection.

However, unlike Basic authentication, Digest authentication transmits credentials across the network as a hash value, also known as a message digest. The user name and password cannot be deciphered from the hash value. Conversely, Basic authentication sends a Base 64 encoded password, essentially in clear text, across the network.

Kerberos

Use Kerberos authentication for establishing a remote connection.

Negotiate

Use Negotiate authentication for establishing a remote connection.

NegotiateWithImplicitCredential

Use Negotiate authentication for establishing a remote connection. Allow implicit credentials for Negotiate.
