question regarding NTLM authentication

I am investigating  the samba4.0 code to see if it can act as a
authentication proxy device sitting in the middle between a CIFS client and
server. It performs pass-through NTLM authentication with the CIFS client (
i.e samba machine as a server, talking to the NT domain controller), and
next turning around acting on behalf of that logged in user as a client
towards the actual CIFS server.

Is there anyway to accomplish this in the samba4.0 code base? If so, can
someone point me to the relevant code?
