I'll second this thread as well because HttpPlatformHandler definitely needs a mechanism to pass remote or authenticated user info. My own issue is that I run Rails under HeliconZoo and IIS authentication is set to certificate required because every user
has their own unique ID certificate. In Rails, I can look in the environment and specifically at CERT_SUBJECT and CERT_ISSUER to find out who authenticated. Under HttpPlatformHandler there is no equivalent so we can't use it in production. Hopefully in 1.3
it will add the authentication info or cert to the request headers.
