     353== D. Authenticating against an external password source == 
     354 
     355In some cases, you may want to authenticate against an  
     356external password source, while still using the standard  
     357Identity models for storing everything except passwords. 
     358 
     359For example, authenticating against an existing Windows/Samba  
     360domain controller means that your users can use the same 
     361password for your TurboGears project as they use to log in 
     362to Windows. (The same concept applies to LDAP, etc.) 
     363 
     364For an example of how to do this, see the attached file  
     365"sosmbprovider", which subclasses the SQLObject provider, 
     366but validates user names and passwords against a Windows domain.
