sylph001,
I have no idea what the original author intended by in and out of band but here are some interesting things I have ran into while doing website automation:
  • Cookies being set with Javascript
  • Authentication using an Ajax JSON post not associated with the "login" button
  • Redirecting to a 1 use URL which authenticated and then redirected to normal page
I am sure there are others but the point was that not all authentication methods are straight forward.

Cheers - L~R
