Is there a way to write a power shell (prefer 2.0) script that would allow an external app's authentication mechanism to pass authentication to Active Directory, and return a boolean value to the external app. The external app would then determine if auth was successful.

I understand the external apps authentication mechanism, so I just really need the cmd-lets that I should be focusing on to handle authentication.

There is a 3rd party app that currently has a perl script that negotiates authentication with AD...so if a user logs in with his application user account, it normally authenticates against the user in the local app, however there is a need to authenticate against AD. The perl script can do this, however it sends the credentials in clear text to the domain controller. I know PS and C#/VB.net have libraries/cmdlets that can authenticate to AD, but want to know if they can be used for pass-through authentication.
