View Full Version : Need Help to Securely Cache & Pass Username & Password from One Firewall to Next...

Hello All,

I have been reading all of these great posts, but could not find anything directly associating with my problem.

I will have a select group of users who will each have their own private username/password login via a windows nt server firewall, which I need to cache/capture. Please keep in mind that these users will be using public computers and I need to either encrpyt password, or delete cookie info when they exit browser.

The problem is that the user will be passing through an Intranet of multiple IP's that will each contain it's own firewall. I am talking about a user that could conceivably pass through 2-50 firewalls in one session. Rather than have the user log-in to each IP, I need to cache/save the first time login info, and pass it to each firewall login request lafter that.

I have been looking for awhile for info on this, and honestly am quite confused at this point. I have a somewhat limited javascript experience, and would appreciate any and all input.

I hope that I have made this clear, and that my request for help is not too much of a demand.

Thank you,

can't you pass it as a hash?.. and.. uh.. JavaScript probably isn't the best language for this...
