Anyone help out with authentication?

I have deployed BE on my companies local intranet and now I need to enable the site so people can log into the blog using their corporate username/password.  For sites like this we are not allowed to utilize LDAP (for which I have found some tutorials) rather we use a custom implementation which involves having the user either redirected to a login URL like:

"https://authenticate.company.com/AuthenticationService/?partner=BLOGNAME"

or I can log the user in directly without redirects using a URL like:

"https://authenticate.company.com/AuthenticationService/Authenticate?partner=BLOGNAME&uid=[uid]&pwd=[pwd]"

My preference would be to implement the second option that does not redirect the user, however, I have absolutely no idea how to go about doing either method.


Does anyone have any examples of a similar implementation or is someone willing to get me started?

Thanks in advance.
