Retreive password of logged on user

I am able to retreive user id of the person logging in.. It might sound strange.. Can i retrive the password also for authentication purpose. Can I use methods like checkPassword() or getHashedPassword() to validate the user ?

Sugestions are welcome.

Yes, it sounds very strange! I would be most uncomfortable as a user if I thought my password could be accessed by an iView. The job of the logon stack is to authenticate and then use SSO from then on. You should make use of the SSO functions of the portal rather than building your own.

You could write your own logon page and grab the password there...
