The short answer is no. With some custom work you might be able to
shoe-horn it into a LoginModule. But that would be a 1-off job.

The correct solution to this problem is to do NETLOGON and whatever
other support is necessary to then do proper GSSAPI. I believe all other
authentication protocols are subsets of that functionality so anything
else is of no interest to us (me). But that will require some fundamental
changes throughout the library so it's not going to happen soon.

Also look at jcifs-ext which has the beginnings of SPNEGO support. That
might be closer to what you're looking for.
