Web Integration Links - Partner Site Logins


After researching Web Integration Links, it appears that this may be a very useful feature as it would allow user's to review their Dictations/Jobs from within SalesForce, submit them, then return back to SalesForce all in the same browser.  But we will need to get past the login page. 

1)  External URL:
2)  Login Page contains Username and Password which may both be different than the user's SaleForce Credentials.

It looks like Web Integration Links may be setup with Query String Parameters, but it does not seem appropriate, for security purposes, to pass user's credentials as Query String Parameters. 

1)  Is it possible to login to another web site's login page without passing credentials in the url?
2)  If not, would this violate the security provisions in the partner agreement?
3)  Do you have a "best practices" for implementing a Partner's web site login?

Please advise...




You could send over the API SessionID, ServerURL and the UserID and then the application could check this UserID (via the Sforce API) and get the Login and Password that could be stored as custom fields on your User table.
