    Auto-logon / SSO/ ActiveDirectory / IE Windows Integrated Au

    zparticle Newbie

      Background:

      We are developing an internal portal that uses ActiveDirectory to authenticate and authorize the users. It is struts/tiles based. I have written a LoginModule for the AD http://www.jboss.org/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=53499. I want the users to be logged into the portal automatically.

      Problem:

      When you turn on Windows Integrated Authentication in IE the windows user name can be retreived with request.getRemoteUser() as long as you are not hitting a secured URI. I created a login jsp that uses java script to autopost to j_security_check however it appears that when the server sends the browser to the login page the user name is no longer in the request. Is there a way around this?

      I don't need the password just the user name.
