Hmm, that's not automation in this sense. The user logins into the
workstation (Windows, don't know about unix), the user opens the browser and
accesses an INTRANET page. The browser (IE or Firefox with NTLM setup) will
then send authentication information to the Intranet server using the NTLM
protocol. The web server (Apache with NTLM module) checks with some internal
Domain server and sets the environmental variable REMOTE_USER. This is then
sent to a CGI or FastCGI app (zope with FastCGI).

Yes, local Intranet users love this, one less login, automatic recognition,
personalisation, instant gratification,... ;-)
