The majority of ColdFusion deployments are on Windows boxes, and so it is no surprise that users have frequently requested a simple way to authenticate users against Active Directory and Windows domains. In the past this required the use of LDAP (and the tag), a process neither clean nor intuitive nor always available. And so in Blackstone we plan to introduce a new tag named which accepts a user id, a password, and a domain name, and returns a yes/no flag letting you know if authentication succeeded or not. Clean and simple, just the way we like it.
