sql authentication would do the job for sure
you can also use windows authentication if you define your domains to trust each other
in sql 2005 you would be able to use certificates

what are the option? i Am assuming that if domain A trust domain B, all the computer in Domain A will have access to domain B.

Can you explain me more on using certificates in SQL 2005? Does this mean that the web server need to import certificate to be used to connect to SQL 2005?

it means that if the web server is at a different domain, it can connect to sql server using certificate authentication even if there is no trust between the domains
