Integrated Windows Authentication and PHP


Recommended Posts

I was toying around with some of the $_SERVER[] variables in PHP earlier and wondered, is it possible to spoof $_SERVER["REMOTE_USER"]? Can Joe Hacker fool PHP / IIS / Whatever into thinking that they're Bob Admin, or would this require a way of emulating Windows security? Is this superglobal property unique to IIS or is it possible via another server based security method?


No purpose, just a curious question.. ;)
