You can include authentication in the access policy in a Secure Web Gateway (SWG) explicit or transparent forward proxy configuration. When you do so if the first site that a user accesses uses HTTP instead of secure HTTP, passwords are passed as clear text. To prevent this from happening, F5® recommends using Kerberos or NTLM authentication.
This implementation includes steps for configuring the NTLM authentication objects that you need to have in place before you configure NTLM authentication in an SWG explicit or transparent forward proxy access policy.
