IIS does not support authentication through LDAP servers natively.
I think that one option is build (or buy, I don't know) an ISAPI filter for authenticate LDAP...

Well, no reason to assume he's talking Open-LDAP here either. AD is an LDAP directory, and in a domain environment, it's the defacto authenticator of users.

If you want to handle user auth exterior to this, however, then I'm afraid you are in for some work. This is not something natively supported, and requires some serious dev work to accomplish.
