Michael Jumper commented on GUACAMOLE-221:

[~surfrock66], you can already do this with parameter tokens. You would 
integrate Guacamole with AD such that your users can log in to Guacamole with 
their AD credentials, then pass those credentials through to RDP using tokens:


The above does *not* require storing passwords in a database. All you store is 
the token.

> Some parameters, such as the username/password for VNC or RDP, are better 
> entered manually within the client when connecting rather than stored on the 
> server in MySQL or {{user-mapping.xml}}.
> Storing secure data within parameters on the server side has security 
> implications that don't fit well with all use cases.
> Further, some connections would benefit if their settings can be modified 
> locally before connecting. A user could change the color depth or screen size 
> of their RDP session, for example, for the sake of a slower connection.
