Being new to SharePoint, we found that we were being asked for login
credentials every time we opened a document from a document library
(even after already logging into the site). We found how we can
configure the browser to automatically pass credentials to alleviate
that problem (by adding *.rochester.edu to "Trusted Sites" and selecting
the "Automatic Logon with current user name password" option in the
Custom security zone). This solution only works for IE (although I have
heard rumor that there is a Firefox add-in) and is also a potential
support hurdle for consumers of the site. It's also a problem for
people who might be using a public PC - whereas the credentials passed
to SharePoint are different from that actual machine user.

It seems like there would/should be a way for SharePoint to use the
credentials that a user has logged into the site with - to also grant
them access to documents.

I plan to call Microsoft and ask them what our options are, but before
doing so I wanted to reach out to you folks to see if you have already
found answers to this issue.
