I've been looking at SSPI recently, as it is used for authentication in a variety of Microsoft products. From the looks of it, it's based on GSSAPI and provides an abstraction for wrapping various authentication mechanisms (e.g. NTLM, Kerberos, etc.) for use in application protocols.
What attacks, if any, are possible against SSPI? Can authentication be downgraded to an easily-breakable (or null) mechanism by an active attacker? Is it possible to pull NTLM or other hashes out of the packets and crack them?
