Just curious how others think about this.

In Active Directory I can quite exact specify what a user can / cannot do on the network.
I can also use the sys(0) to see who is logged in and on what machine.

The application I build and maintain is running ALSO (among other scenarios) over a VPN on citrix.
Can I use the same sys(0) to determine who the user is? My own guess is that this is possible since they need to log in as on any other windhose machine.
I am not quite familiar with the backgrounds of Citrix other than being a user, hence my Q.

Then here is the 1000 dollar question: "If I can determine who the user is, and AD sets the rights for that user, then what would be the use of a separate log-in procedure for an application?"

I can use the username to set up my menu and other rights for that specific user. Or am I missing something here?

Your much appreciated thoughts on this are most welcome.
