Hi Denis,

More or less you need to write some new extension - probably the easiest 
way will be to follow the ldap model - the module just fetch the 
password into the script and then you can use the auth module to inject 
directly the auth username and passwd.

If you need assistance with this, please let's continue the discussion 
on the devel list.
