Hi, what are the different between Basic Authentication and Integrated Authentication? Another related question; if we have a web application that required to validate users against Active Directory, is it possible to validate them from a computer is not part of that domain where users are member of using either Basic Authentication or Integrated Authentication?

Basic authernication requires the user to specify a name/password.
Integrated authentication uses kerbros - do if the user has already logged into a trusted AD domain then no username password is required again

Since integrated authentication requires a trust with authenticating computer you can only use this between machines in the same (or a trusted) domain.

Basic Authentication - http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/WindowsServer2003/Library/IIS/abbca505-6f63-4267-aac1-1ea89d861eb4.mspx?mfr=true
Integrated Authentication - http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/WindowsServer2003/Library/IIS/abbca505-6f63-4267-aac1-1ea89d861eb4.mspx?mfr=true
I would think that as long as the user has a name and password with basic they should be able to get in....however let one of the IIS guys help with that one.
Thanks

So does that mean it's possible to do that(validate against AD from a computer not in the same domain) using Basic Authentication?
