It must be the same bug in Internet Explorer then, that authenticates
seamlessly with a quick whoami.php using mod_sspi with no SSL on
Apache, and that can log into ASP.NET applications on IIS without SSL.

I'm not saying it's secure (I've seen articles to the contrary), but I
am saying that I know it does work. It's less the security, it's more
the convenience of having users authenticated automatically and being
sure that they didn't log in as someone else, which you don't get with
Basic or Digest.
