Web Site security

Hello,

I have a web application which has its own security database of usernames & passwords. This application will not integrate with windows authentication.

What I want though is for people to authenticate to the domain before accessing this web application.

What I was thinking of was putting a link to the web application on a portal, the point being that you have to authenticate to the portal to get to the link.

But the problem is that people could browse to the web application by inserting the url into their browser if they knew the url,  is there anyway I can stop people from just browsing to the web application url?

Any other methods for doing this kind of thing?

Thanks
