You should architect your application to authenticate users against a
LDAP/AD server, store a mapping from objects to user permissions in some
persistent store, and vend signed URLs to clients when they request and
have permission to read/write an given object.  jclouds does not offer
any support for LDAP/AD and the greater Java ecosystem generally has
poor support for this.
