Authentication across sites

    Hello,

    I've been reading old posts and articles but haven't found a solution
    yet for the following.

    I'd like to authenticate users across two different sites on two
    different domains--in other words, a single sign-on scheme--so once the
    user has logged into Site 1, we can transfer his login or session to
    Site 2.

    The first site isn't .NET and isn't running under the same domain so I
    can't use Forms Authentication with the same machine key as suggested
    in other posts. I think we'll still need to do something on their end
    using whatever (non-.NET) scripting technology they have available, and
    we should be able to accomplish this.

    One thought is to store usernames and encrypted passwords in our
    database, and have Site 1 pass us these data (from a posted form,
    perhaps?) for authentication, possibly over SSL. Our preference,
    though, is not to have any login data--encrypted or otherwise--in our
    possession.

    Or something using Web services?

    I haven't had to deal with this before so I'm a bit stumped on this
    one. Thanks!
