Windows Authentication via COM ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    Is it possible via COM as a third party developer to use Windows authentication as a way of authorising users in my own application ? In a similar way to how SQL Server implements it

    Or is it only Microsoft that can use this type of method ?

  • Windows authentication is already done when the user log into Windows.... does your code run on a different machine?

    If you want to grant application-specific rights to windows users, check Authorization.
