Could I login to MW without typing the username and password?
Non-logged-in users cannot read pages in my MW.
I try to do if somebody gives an URL to the browser and the authentication
could be automatic.
I believe you're talking about Single Sign-On (SSO). If you're using
Linux or FreeBSD on the web server and Microsoft Active Directory for
your identity management, then the Plexcel extension does SPNEGO
Kerberos SSO (aka IWA in Windows speak):
IE and FF will automatically authenticate. No username or password
necessary. But the login form may also still be used. Also, all
information in the local MW DB is populated from AD so account
management is pushed back into AD. Access to the wiki is controlled by
a list of Windows groups in LocalSettings.php.
