It's left to a user folder of some ilk.  Take a look at
AccessControl/User.py.  To use your own authentication
scheme, you probably want something like Extensible User
Folder.

I've only used standard HTTP authentication, but I think
these typically have hooks for cookie-based (ick) 
authentication.
