IIS – Digest Authentication

Here is the third one from my closet.

The following steps would help you configure Digest Authentication on IIS

* Launch IIS Management Console.

* Right click on the website for which Digest authentication should be enabled and select the properties.

* Click on the Directory Security Tab and Edit the Authentication and Access control

* In the Authentication Methods, Disable Anonymous access and select Integrated Windows authentication and Digest authentication for Windows Domian servers.

* Pass the alert and apply the settings.

* Restart IIS

Digest Authentication is now setup on IIS.

Just remember one thing that in order to configure Digest authentication in IIS, the server that hosts IIS should be in a Domain that provides the user access for that machine
