Details

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.

Are these two realy the same? it sounds like sspi is a broader concept.
