get connection Information for logging in an update trigger

I need to know how to get the id of the user that is updating some fields in my SQL Server 2005 database. I have set update triggers for the fields and I'm getting good logs of the values and when they are changing, but I'm wondering if there is a way to get the user connection string information that is connected to the database running the updates.

I understand that the application that uses this DB would show up for almost all updates, but there are other process external to the application, and those are the ones I'm trying to pin point because one of them is not updating the fields correctly.

I know this can be done in Oracle, but I couldn't find anything on SQL Server 2005.

Many Thanks!

Are you talking about your application user_id or the database user_id.

If SQL login info, these are some fields.

select user_id(),user_name(),system_user
