I evaluated mod_auth_pam and pam_smb, as well as using mod_auth_ldap
against active directory. mod_auth_ldap proved to require less setup.
I didn't find a good example of apache authenticating against active
directory, so maybe my configuration would be useful to others:
AuthLDAPBindDN "cn=Seth Delisle,ou=IT Administration,dc=mydomain,dc=com"
Note that you need an AuthLDAPBindDN enty that resolves to a user with
permissions to browse the active directory, and that the first cn= is not the
same string that you would use to log into a windows box, it's described as the
"Display Name" when using window's mmc domain-users "snap-in."
The Apache2 docs describe the configuration directives in detail:
