I have an IIS box running in our DMZ and we want to try to create a single sign on experience for our users.  I want to use radius and I have it set up and the firewall ports are open, but IIS doesn't seem to be using radius.  All non-local users (server is not part of AD of course) are not authenticated.  I have searched here, other techie sites and google, but very little info on this.  There is a company called www.tcpdata.com that has an isapi filter that does this, but it seems that this should be available using MS SW.

The short answer: No. That's the only product available now that will do the job.

IIS doesnt have any scope for covering radius auth. Needless to say, you create your own implementation of a RADIUS client in ASP.net but this would require you know a lot about the inner workings of the RADIUS protocol and also lots of socket experience.

It looks like using the component from tcpdata might be the easiest/fastest(and therefore cheapest) method of doing it.

Of course, you have no connection with them whatsoever, right? ;-)

I've ordered their demo and will probably end up using it.  I'm surprised that their aren't more resources out there for this issue.  I know federation services offers this, and ADAM might work for our needs.  This has to be a common problem, so what do other sites use?
