I have read various guides on how to configure FBA with LDAP Membership provider and i am able to successfully login by configuring the config files for Central Admin, STSA, and Web App by using a custom login page.
I have seen a number of issues with these methods, specifically around the people picker selections, display names of users, and the inability to search for groups. I want to keep NT authentication but not have to use the membership providers, IE, I want to be able to replace the NT Challenge prompt with a form login prompt that creates a SharePoint authentication token and then redirects to the main site.
I don't mind doing this in a separate ASP.Net app if necessary, but I cannot seem to find any good examples on how to create a valid authentication token so that the user is not prompted to enter.
Is this even possible (Effectively SSO into SharePoint 2010)?
