Difference between 401 based and Form based Authentication

Recommended Posts

Hello Experts,


What would be difference between 401 based and Form based authentication from Netscaler usage perspective.

In an enterprise environment while designing a solution, what conditions/factors would decide the type of authentication to be used for the load balancers?


I tried google the answer but didn't find any satisfactory explanation.

401 authentication if use for kerberos (negotitate or NTLM) authentication, so the way to not ask user/login credential

Form based authentication is most used when the end user are not connect with a domain or outside the corporate network.

I know that NTLM is alos do when you have a domain account but outside the corporate network, but now it's protocol that is not sure.


For mis side I used Kerberos into the coporate network + FormBased (ldap) for user that don't have joined domain devices, and formBased(ldap) for external network
