>1) What type of encryption-algorithm does it use ?
NTLMv2 uses Some kind of MS specific encryption... no idea of the
Kerberos is a standard encryption that's known to be secure.
Which one gets used depends on your setup... normally on a pure active
directory domain Kerberos will be chosen, otherwise it'll use NTLMv2.
>2) Does it have reliance on machine environment or system configuration ?
Only standard Windows configuration.
