Forms based authentication + multiple applications + directory service....

I have to implement a security like this:
1. The user is logged into a home made extranet in PHP, a directory server
is used (not the active directory) (its a form based authentication)
2. the user click on a link on the extranet application and jump to another
server & application which is my ASPX application

I want to be able to keep the login of the user, so the user is directly

After this, I have to impersonate the page context because I have some
secure information to retrieve from the disk and OLAP cubes.

Today my ASPX application works correctly if I'm using the NTLM or Basic
So the impersonation is easy in this case.

Also its important for me to use the group membership to manage some
authorization using the User.IsInRole system.

To finish, I'm developping an ASP.NET 2.0 application.

How can I implement this?
I have to confirm this, but I can change the PHP application code to add
some step in the process.

thanks for your guide.
