Currently, you will have to add some code in the server to support your 
custom authentication. And you will have to inject this code in the 
server. It's not _yet_ plugable, but will be soon.

The place to look at is the protocol-ldap subproject, where you have a 
BindHandler with 5 different authenticator mechanisms, out of which the 
NTLM ones may be the closest implementation to what you want to do.

Hope it helps ...
