I guess I am not really sure what you mean, since you're talking about two different concepts. Authentication deals with user identification (is the user identifiable as a valid user). Authorization deals with user roles (what does the user have access to). These are handled by two separate concerns using any type of security provider. Can you provide a specific example of what you are trying to do? The standard Spr Sec LDAP classes do support flexible methods of authentication (finding the user in LDAP / Active Directory) and authorization (figuring out what groups they belong to), but you can always extend the standard classes to do what you need, if you want.
