Use of Windows login details - single sign on for web applications

I saw an interesting post in the Amis blog tonight. The post was made a few weeks ago and is titled "Single Sign On for Web Applications - Use of Windows Login details". In this post Lucas Jellema talks about a post by Matt Raible titled "JCIFS and jWebUnit" which talks about JCIFS to achieved single sign on with Windows Login for web applications. Lucas said he has not had time to play with this yet and he says it could be a good solution where full blown Portal based SSO is not reasonable or practical. Lucas also points us at a good paper about "Single Sign on" using the Windows login. Again Lucas's post is here.
