Accessing logged in user credentials in Windows

P: 1
Is there a way in Javascript through which we can get the userid and password of the logged in user of the windows 2000/2003?

Actually, I have a web application and I need a single signon kind of functionality where when user logs into his domain and opens the web page of the site he should be automtically logged into the website without asking for his userid / password. The web application's userid/password will be same as that of the domain.

Not possible with JavaScript. For an intranet IE-only environment, you could possibly look for an ActiveX solution which might let you access to this information in a trusted zone with low security settings.

if you use iis server, it can provide authentication to any users or gorups that are on the serving machine, but not on the client's machine.

for example to load a secure page from my laptops's iis server using firefox on my desktop, i login (with the same user and password as i do on the laptop) to a pop-up box that appears automatically on the page when navigated/ajax'd.
