Thank's Kees,
I looked at it, but I think you can generate a 2FA for users located in 
an AD to authenticate against web-application, but I can't find any hint 
on how to set up the Windows-authentcation. I don't need a new 
login-screen for Windows (what some commercial tools have) I could do 
the 2FA like it's possible with OpenLDAP give the username and then the 
password2fs combination. Protecting a web-application is no problem the 
problem is always the userlogin to the workstation :-(. But that's what 
I'm looking for.
