The external users can be authenticated against AD using Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). A lot of development frameworks have support for LDAP.(.Net, PHP etc)

Below link shows how an asp.net web application can use Forms Based Authentication (FBA) to allow users to authenticate against the AD using LDAP.


Hope this may helps
