SSPI allows an application to use various security models available on a computer or network without changing the interface to the security system. This provides support for interactive and noninteractive authentication through NTLM, Kerberos, Digest SSP. GINA provides the user login loaded by WINLOGON.EXE. SSPI allows a trusted connection to the Local Security Authority (LSA) and authenticates with Kerberos. If Kerberos authentication is not possible, or credentials are different than the logged in user, the user will be prompted for credentials and be communicated via NTLM. This needs to be made feature pref-controlled.
