Unanswered: re-authenticating users when using OS authentication
Setup: target system - 9i forms on 9iAS version 2, development system 9i forms supported by OC4J standalone on 9i vanilla (no AS). All are running on W2000.
Is it possible to request the OS to re-authenticate a user during a form session? Specifically the steps involved would be for the form to request a password and then somehow send that password off to the OS for authentication and be returned a pass of fail. There is a government requirement that you must verify that an individual is really who you think they are when a certain action is taken.
