It's using Active Directory to automatically log you in.  So each user is being logged in.  I do no believe there is a physical login screen, and the data model is not designed to deal with passwords and all that good stuff.

Basically, IIS has an authentication mode called Windows Authentication.  Windows passes the user information you used to log in to windows to IIS.  Slick ticket then receives the username from IIS and that is how it decides who is logged in.

Here is some information on the authentication.

Active Directory comes into play, because you can assigned an Active Directory Group an 'access level' within Slicket Ticket.  The access level of a users Active Directory groups control what they can see within Slick Ticket. 

 

Here is a better explantion of the permissions system: http://wiki.slick-ticket.com/Permission%20System%20Explained.ashx
