You can use VPN for this scenario. VPN would provide a secure network
(encryption) path between user at home and the company site using
internet. VPN can be setup pretty easily and quickly on any platform.

Here is what my developers are wanting to do, and I cannot think of a secure way to do this.

Have a user (at home) authenticate against our LDAP through a company portal/site and have that authentication

So, it's user at site A, authenticating with site B, and the user at site A using the application (after 
authentiation) at site C.

Sorry for being long winded, but everything there screams MITM to me.  I am probably missing something easy.
