When treating a Domino Server as a web server, a form containing the Username and Password of a user can be posted to a URL with the ?Login command to perform user authentication.
By default, the authentication searches through the names.nsf database, searching for a user by the same username. If the usernames match, then the passwords are compared (the submitted password is hashed and compared with the stored one). If a match is found, then user authentication is successful.
My question is whether it is possible to customize the web authentication algorithm. For example, is it possible to re-program it to search a database other than names.nsf, perform different password hashing if you are using a different type of password encryption, etc.
