Chapter 21. Securing Your Applications > Using Operating System Security

Using Operating System Security

We've seen how you can roll your own security system so that authentication can be performed in multiple fashions. You can use a database lookup, LDAP, or any other method. One that may be particularly useful is the operating system itself. If your ColdFusion server runs on a Windows machine using domains, ColdFusion allows you to authenticate against any domain. You can not only authenticate a user, you can get a list of groups the user is a member of. This is all possible with the new, <cfNTAuthenticate> tag. Table 21.4 lists the attributes for this tag.
