Our development group would like to deploy a small IIS 6.0 server as an extranet host. Is it possible to use an authentication system other than active directory with this system? Can anyone recommend an alternative that we can plug-in to IIS through the regular security mechanism for web sites?

You can complicate things as much as you like - different users can have different access permissions etc.
