    Using CF to Read Windows Authentication Values

    jonathanbdavis
      I have a CF intranet site running on a Windows 2003 member server. Several folders use basic authentication for access (prompts user for Active Directory credentials and allows access based on security permissions for the respective folder)

      I would like to read the value of the username of the authenticated user, query AD and output a value on my coldfusion page. For example, if I input my username (jdavis), I would like for coldfusion to query Active Directory and return my full name and output "Welcome Jonathan Davis" to the page.

      Is this even possible? I know it is with ASP.NET but I prefer CF. If it is possible, could someone point me in the right direction?

      Thanks in advance!
