    I'd like to set up a separate web application to authenticate users with their Sitefinity credentials.  I've figured out how to do the single sign-on where the cookie is tied to the whole domain (all subdomains) and the user remains logged in when linking to the other application.  However, because we need to prompt the user to login within the other application when requesting secure resources, I'd like the login form in the custom app to authenticate using the sitefinity membership provider.  Is there a way to do this in beta2?

    Hello Matt,

    The only way to do this is through a web service call to Sitefinity where you use username and password as parameters. You should validate the user - UserManager.ValidateUser  and return a response from the call.
