So when I launch my web application into a browser, the auto-connection is successfully performed (single sign-on through Upstream, kerberos, remote_user, ...). But when I want to launch the applet in the web application, a new authentication panel (red panel with "authentication required") occurs in order to set credentials (login, password, domain) with the message in the java applet console:
"network: Firewall authentication: site=myApplicationUrl, protocol=http, prompt=, scheme=ntlm"
So why the applet doesn't inherit previous credentials in this case ??
Have you solved this problem ?

There is a bug fix in JRE 6u24, after this fix, Java applet will only use transparent authentication if the URL is belonging to certain type of security zone in Internet security zone setting for NTLM authentication.
I think the difference you noticed is due to above change, but the fix is in JRE6u24 and later, please let me know which JRE update release you noticed the regression, and how about our latest JRE 6u27?
By the way, do you have a simple testcase which can reproduce this issue, we would like to test it out.
I am a little concerned about the responses from forum members 'JoeM' and 'dgu'. There is an implication from both members that they are in some way associated with Oracle and that based on this thread Oracle will investigate the original problem. This site is a forum and most member have no direct association with Oracle and in general do not speak for Oracle. I do not know how these members are associated with Oracle but as far as I am aware the only way to get Oracle to investigate problems such as reported here is to go via the bug reporting system ( http://bugreport.sun.com/bugreport/ ).
