I'm not incredibly seasoned with the finer details of AD authentication, but here's what I have. One of the products we use has its own authentication mechanism that provides no AD integration. It uses an HTML web form for the login screen to collect and submit the credentials over SSL for authentication. Unfortunately, my company really prefers to use AD authentication wherever possible.
What I would really like to find is a "wrapper" login page that fills the gap and does the following:
- Provides a web page to collect the login credentials
- Authenticates the provided credentials with AD
- If the AD credentials are valid, the page passes pre-determinded administrative credentials to the legacy app's login form, submits the form, and logs in
Does such a "wrapper" page exist?
