Is you're talking about having a "single sign-on" type feature whereby users just get automatically logged in to your app then that's a good question, and one that many people have asked in the past. Unfortunately, there isn't an easy solution since you basically have to build/simulate the NTLM authentication mechanism into the container. It's a strange double handshaking protocol that isn't particularly documented. I have seen some stuff on the internet about how it works, but I've never actually come across anybody that has implemented it.
Anybody else know of anything? Perhaps 3rd party products and/or libraries?

Java may not be capable of doing this. Try using C/C++ to do it.

Signed applets can get you the user name.
using System.getProperty("user.name");
