NTLM / SSPI / LDAP / single sign-on - Help!

I'm trying to work out how I can integrate LDAP logon security into our client/server application. I want the client to establish a session with the server (via remoting) and to pass the credentials across, either as a feature of .net or by explicitly passing them, so that the user does not need to log on separately.

I can't find any examples or even the correct terminology. LDAP is the directory accessing which I don't want to do. NTLM seems to deal with logging on and SSPI seems to be the closest thing to google for - except if you put SSPI into google you just get a million connection strings back!

I don't need the solution (though I'd appreciate it!) but can anyone give me a clue what to search for? The correct terminology

Thanks

Well, windows does use a version of Kerberos, so perhaps that's what you're looking for.

I am assuming that you want to trying to auth to W2K{3} as you have mentioned SSPI and NTLM and LDAP. SSPI is similar to gssapi. But gssapi cant be used to write into the cred cache for SSO to work appropriately. Try the following links
