My web host claims that he is unable to meet our company's request of enabling Basic Authentication for our hosted SharePoint site. While I understand that we can use NTLM, we are hoping for a slightly more secure solution. He says:
"Unfortunately, as we are on a hosted environment we cannot enable basic authentication as it will affect all sites residing on the same farm."
I am assuming that he is running some form of IIS. Is there a way that he can enable Basic Auth for a specific domain as opposed to opening all of them up to Basic Auth requests?
