Authenticate a portal user via a completely external site


How do we authenticate a portal user via a completely external site?

Hi Sidharth,

Will you please elaborate the business requirement/use case for which you need this type for login verification?

You can also think of SSO where you can validate your user from other site and navigate to Salesforce portal.

A website where our SF organization portal users can login and see there data.
This website will not be a SF Site, and thus not be using the VF Pages, and and is built completely outside of SF using advanced web design technologies.

How to authenticate the portal users, and once authenticated, how would we continue to access that information tied to the client?
