Single sighn on for web app?
I have, what I believe to be a simple(ish) problem. With possibly a very complicated solution...
I have a web application that requires the user to log in. It authenticates against active directory to log the user on.
So the user logs into the workstation and then has to log in again onto the web page using the same username and password.
Is there any way of having it so that when the user logs in to the workstation it automatically picks up their A.D. Username and Password and completes a logon on the web application to initiate an authenticated session, so that when they click on the web icon, they are passed straight though into the application instead of having to stop at the password screen and re-enter their credentials?
I know its not the end of the world entering the details twice, but for some users who dont really want to use the program, this is becomming a boundary which I need to remove!
If anyone could suggest a solution, or reading materials that explain how the loggin details are handled when the user logs into windows, I would be greatful.
