Uses of the new NetWeaver Single Sign-On

Hi fellow SAP'ers

I investigation the uses of the soon-to-be released NW Single Sign-On ( [original link is broken]).

My use case is that I have a portal that uses ABAP as UME, but has SPNego configured. Which is perfect for most users. But a few computers are used by many users, which does not log on to Windows with their own identity but a shared one. BUT when they access the portal, they should log on with their own credentials. This is bad, since SPNego tries to use the shared indentity, and it I fall back to forms based authentication they must use their ABAP password which is a no-go. It must be the AD password!

I hoped that the new solution could fix my problem, but it seems not to be the case. Does anyone understand the documentation othervise?
