Except for the code which Joseph sent earlier, the other stuff you have been pointed to 
will work under any OS under which Tomcat is running.
But for NTLM (or SPNEGO or WIA or whatever other names are given to Windows-style 
authentication) they generally require that the Tomcat server itself, be inside the same 
network as the users' workstations; and also that the Tomcat server has network access to

a Windows Domain Controller.
That is usually the case when you are considering this type of authentication. But for 
example it will not work if the workstations are inside a company's network, and the 
Tomcat server is outside the intranet, on the WWW for instance.
