The NtlmPasswordAuthentication password member is only populated when a
clear text password is supplied using jcifs.smb.client.password or in the
URL credentials field. NTLM HTTP Authentication never sends the password
iself -- only the password hashes. Indeed you never will be able to
retrieve a user's clear text password as that would be a security
