The problem is too generic. It depends, very heavily, on what your
authentication technology is. To keep Windows and Linux authentication
in sync, they need to use the same password handling tools. This is
ideally Kerberos, since that's what Active Directory uses with the
name scraped off and concealed.

Migrating non-Kerberos users to Kerberos is.... its own adventure. The
passwords are stored very differently, and there's no way to simplay
transfer one to the other without someone putting in passwords.
