I'm not an IIS or Active Directory expert by any means so I want to present a scenario here and see if what we want to accomplish is feasible.
We have an application hosted on Windows Server 2008 R2 with a series of web services exposed as an API through IIS. These services will be called by multiple external integration systems. If we configure the IIS services to use Basic authentication, will IIS validate the credentials we pass to it against Active Directory by default, is this a special configuration setting, or is this not possible? We'd like for those credentials to be validated against AD so we receive the token/principal in return, which can be sent to the underlying application on that server.
Thanks in advance. Any help is appreciated.
