In the future when "username login mode" authentication is supported in
JNDIRealm, you could probably get it to authenticate against ActiveDirectory
that way. It wouldn't actually be using NTLM though. Also, I was thinking
that it might be cool to have a KerberosRealm class that you could use to
authenticate using Kerberos. Kerberos on the backend anyway (not the way
you're supposed to use Kerberos, but, useful if what you want is single
sign-on). Kerberos authentication is supported natively in JDK 1.4. I did
some testing of it using it with JNDI and I was able to authenticate to
Active Directory using Kerberos.
