For PHP you would have to implement a logging system for internal web server, that would be the easiest way. Turning on your computer by your employee won't provide you the information you want - who's logged on etc. Not in PHP, you should use some network monitoring tool for that.

The fun part of this is, that you can do it in PHP using windows COM model with WMI (it is what it sounds - not so simple).

What you're talking about is generally known as "authentication" and it implies the concept that the client "logs in" to the server by providing some mutually understood credentials.  In the traditional client-server model postulated by Fielding, et al, there is no requirement for the client to be authenticated unless the server contains such a requirement.  So learn about login/logout and let that guide your thinking on this subject.

Can't hep you with ASP, but this article describes the PHP part of things.
