login context propogation from WEB to EJB

Hi,

I'm using my custom login module for authentication (in the web tier).
[ LoginContext lc = new LoginContext("myCustomDomain"); ...]

I have no security settings in my descriptors. The above is purely for authentication.

Now, when I lookup an EJB; and call EJBContext.getCallerPrincipal() I would like the Principal that is in the Subject of my Login Context lc above.

This this possible?

Thanks in advance for any insight.
