Coldfusion and Windows Integrated Security

The project I'm currently working on resides in two locations. One inside our corporate firewall for users to setup a survey and a second outside our firewall for users to actually take the survey. For the internal piece we wanted to be able to identify the user based on their Windows login information so they did not have to log-in a second time.

It took a little searching but once I found what I was looking for it was actually quite simple to implement. First off you need to disable anonymous access to the directory containing you web site in IIS and then enable Windows Integrated Security. Once that is in place you you can use the CGI environment variable AUTH_USER to grab the username of the user currently logged into the machine in the domain\username format.
