Implementing Single Sign On (SSO) for application

Hi

We are running AD 2003 in our environment. We have multiple domains in one forest.

There is a finance application (FinanceApp) that we use on most users' desktops. At the moment, their usernames/passwords for AD and for FinanceApp are two seperate entities. That is, they log on to their PC's with their AD credentials, and when they launch FinanceApp they need to enter a seperate set of credentials.

We'd like to look into some sort of SSO functionality, whereby once users log onto their PC via AD, these same credentials can log them onto the FinanceApp.

Does anyone know how we can make this work? FinanceApp runs on Windows 2003 Servers and our clients are Windows XP.

What MK says :)

Microsoft products support SSO OOTB. For other applications, the developer will have to integrate it with AD for SSO to work.

Thanks both.

So if we do integrate the app with AD, would that still be SSO we're using, or an AD integrated app?

I'm having trouble visualising how SSO can work if there isn't any AD integration?
