I'm no expert but I think this depends on your web server.  I know for sure that IIS 
can do http
authenticates against NT/Windows 2000 accounts and although I know Microsoft used to 
make it
difficult for third-party web servers in the old days, I would have thought it was 

As far as Php is considered, the user/password show up in $PHP_AUTH_USER, $PHP_AUTH_PW 
or something
similar.  To force an authentication you send an http Authentication header e.g. 

Bottom line: Check with your web server news group/user list.
