Get Intranet login username

I am using Apache Tomcat 6.0.18 on a Windows Server that also has IIS. For IIS I can enable Integrated Windows authentication to fetch the Intranet Windows login username using ColdFusion. Is there a setting in Apache Tomcat I need to enable Integrated Windows authentication so I can fetch the Intranet Windows login username by using JSP in Apache Tomcat?

This would be what I use to fetch the username:
System.getenv("USERNAME")

The current output is SYSTEM instead of my username.

Please advise.
