Configuring NTLM Authentication

If the target network uses the NTLM protocol to verify the user’s access rights, you need to set up an NTLM authentication object. The protocol requires a user to be authenticated by providing a username and a corresponding password. After the user’s log-in credentials are recognized, the network can then check access rights and allow the user to enter.

Therefore, you can grant Bright access to an NTLM authenticated network you are going to use for a scan by providing your credentials, workstation name, and the network domain.
