    We're currently using Telerik's controls for ASP.NET, but we'll be moving to Silverlight controls very soon for a 5-year project. 

    One of the things we're tasked with is to create a single-point-of-entry interface into multiple locally installed web-based systems that all share the exact same LDAP authentication for login.  This way, the user would login once to a secured site, have their credentials verified, and then any time they want to access other systems (that all have their own login prompts), all they do is click a button and it would automatically provide the user ID and password fields and submit it using their already-verified login information.

    It occurs to us that this technology already exists.  (Some members of our team used to do this with client-server programs in the "good old days" of keystroke scripts.  Current fingerprint readers such as Upek Eikon do this on web-based forms without any issues, so we know it can be done.  Everything sits behind an https: secured site.

    We've come to trust and appreciate the fantastic tool kits provided by Telerik, and thought this would be a fantastic new tool to add to the already abundant tool box.
