I don't know how one would do this precisely but I believe it is
possible at the proxy level - i.e. setting up Apache to handle this
and authenticate with system resources. I believe Tim Booth's work on
integrating galaxy into biolinux uses system users for authentication
by default.

The following thread has more discussion on that:
http://lists.bx.psu.edu/pipermail/galaxy-dev/2014-March/018770.html

More generic information on configuring an Apache Proxy can be found here:
https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Config/ApacheProxy

Hope this helps.
