WAS Security

I am using LDAP authentication mechanism for my application running in WAS.
To enable LDAP authentication for my application i have to enable global security in the WAS console. Once i enable this, to login into the WAS console i have to use the userId and password i specified for the LDAP settings.
Is there any way of setting a userId and password for WAS console different from the ones set to access the LDAP server and still enable global security?

Also how can single sign-on be implemented?
