In Version and above, the Self Service Password Reset (SSPR) server Enrollment virtual directory is configured with Digest Authentication instead of Windows Integrated authentication.  This was a security improvement that requires users to authenticate before enrolling to SSPR. Windows Integrated authentication allowed anyone with access to the session to start enrollment without authentication.

Is it possible to revert SSPR server to utilize Windows Integrated authentication instead of the default Digest authentication on the Enrollment Client site so that users will not be prompted to input their Windows username and password when they are attempting to Auto-Enroll during logon?
