Single sign-on using an LDAP directory

I would like to have single sign-on using an LDAP directory in an environment that includes Windows NT and Domino. Is it possible for users to log on to NT using LDAP authentication and for the password to be synchronized with Notes? Would the clients need to keep their Notes ID files or would it be possible to include the hierarchical name and certificate in the LDAP Directory for authentication with the Domino server?
You could only do this with HTTP based applications, using a Domino/IIS engine. To synchronize NT/2000 and Domino passwords, as well as allow for single-sign on, all work must be done from the Notes client and ID file. You cannot use a Notes client without a valid Notes ID file. Also, if you change your passwords, it must be done in Notes. Notes will synchronize the NT password but NT will not synchronize with Notes. This is a limitation/choice of Microsoft and Windows NT/2000.
