SYNOPSIS

    use Authen::SASL qw(Perl);

    $sasl = Authen::SASL->new(
        mechanism => 'NTLM',
        callback  => {
            user => $username, # or "$domain\\$username"
            pass => $password,
        },
    );

    $client = $sasl->client_new(...);
    $client->client_start;
    $client->client_step('');
    $client->client_step($challenge);

DESCRIPTION

This module is a plugin for the Authen::SASL framework that implements the client procedures to do NTLM authentication.

Most users will probably only need this module indirectly, when you use another module that depends on Authen::SASL with NTLM authentication. E.g. connecting to an MS Exchange Server using Email::Sender, which depends on Net::SMTP(S) which in turn depends on Authen::SASL.

You may see this when you get the following error message:

    No SASL mechanism found

(Unfortunately, Authen::SASL currently doesn't tell you which SASL mechanism is missing.)

CALLBACK

The callbacks used are:

Client

user

The username to be used for authentication. The domain may optionally be specified as part of the user string in the format "$domain\\$username".

pass

The user's password to be used for authentication.

Server

This module does not support server-side authentication.
