ArcGIS Server 10.1 and Kerberos

Is it possible to configure ArcGIS Server 10.1 in such a way that it uses Kerberos to authenticate to back-end databases? We are using the Web Adaptor with IIS7 on a separate server with our AGS using Domain Users/Groups and web tier security.  We have Web Services which get their data from a view in one of our SQL Server databases.  We would like the user to connect to the web service, and have their credentials ???flow??? through to that back-end database. 

In ArcGIS 10.0, the server ran inside IIS, and so IIS???s normal settings could be used to enable Kerberos authentication (by setting impersonate=true).  That would cause user credentials to flow through to back-end databases.  Now that ArcGIS server runs outside IIS, we are not sure how to achieve the same effect.
