ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider without storing username and password?


I am trying to create an ASP login page that authenticates against AD.

Is there any way to setup a connection string in web.config that does not
store a user name and password?

If I do this, it works great, but I need to modify the web.config every time
the password changes:

<add connectionStringName="NorthAmericaConnectionString"
attributeMapUsername="sAMAccountName" enableSearchMethods="true"
type="System.Web.Security.ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider, System.Web,
Version=,Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"
connectionUsername="username" connectionPassword="mypass"/>

As everyone who will be logging in is authorized to search AD, I don't see
why I cannot use the login information from the login form?

Does Microsoft really expect me to either use a non expiring password, or
change all my web.config files on password expiration?
