Read up on the concept of "Identity Federation".
Another route may include using a form of OpenID.

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 
information passed to an external vendor, allowing the user at home to utilize the application from home after being 

 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.
