AFAICT, mod_auth_kerb uses HTTP Basic auth and the Negotiate auth along
with Kerberos as the authenticator.  Does a Windows domain controller
now also act as a KDC?

Really, what you're asking for is implementation of the HTTP Negotiate
auth. method (aka "Integrated Windows authentication"):

    Authentication in WinHTTP

It appears that Windows 2000 and later do support Kerberos, so that's
good to know.  Older clients will fall back to NTLM.

I've seen (but never used) libntlm for NTLM auth (as well as Samba,
which I think implements NTLM auth).  Kerberos auth on the server-side
should be straightforward to implement.

It'd be really neat to have a Negotiate auth. implementation for
AOLserver.  If anyone's already done it, and would be willing to share,
that'd be fantastic.

Otherwise, it's yet another item to add to the ever-growing TODO list.
