I've used mod_auth_sspi for this in the past. It was important at the time
for us to be able to transparently authenticate MSIE users. By
"transparently",
I mean that the browser should authenticate the users without showing a
login
window of any kind.

These days we use ordinary HTTP Basic authentication over SSL along with
mod_auth_ldap. This allows users to authenticate using their AD accounts,
but it doesn't provide "single sign on" in the sense that users must
re-enter their credentials in order to use SVN.

If Shirish's Kerberos option doesn't work out for whatever reason, then you
might want to check out mod_auth_sspi.
