Remote authentication and CMIS

I have a quite complicated configuration set up, which involves a Windows Domain server, an Alfresco instance (running on Linux/Tomcat), and a separate web application written in python. All using SSO to authenticate the domain users, and everything is working just fine.

Now I have to access the Alfresco CMIS JSON API (/alfresco/service/cmis) from the web app, and I am unable to authanticate the users this way.

The normal username/password/ticket method obviously does not work for the domain users (since I do not know the password). I tried to set the REMOTE_USER header, but the service simpy disregards it. What I am missing here?
