Creating MYSAPSSO2 credential outside of WebAS?

Is it possible to generate a MYSAPSSO2 credential outside of WebAS?

We're developing a number of .Net connector objects that leverage MYSAPSSO2 for single sign-on. These objects don't live within WebAS. I'd like to find a way to give users the MYSAPSSO2 cookie without making them first log into an EP portal, WebAS service, etc. Can this be done?

    I just thought of an alternative that might work as well.

    Within our Intranet, we make use of Netegrity's SiteMinder product. Every web user has a SiteMinder cookie similar to SAP's SSO cookie.

    I wonder if it'd be possible to leverage this SiteMinder cookie for SAP .Net authentication? That is, maybe I could customize the WebAS backend to intercept the SiteMinder cookie (passed through the .Net connector), validate it and resume the "normal" SAP authentication process (possibly resulting in a MYSAPSSO2 cookie being created as well).
