I'm in a corporate environment using BES. Is there for a way for me to capture user credentials for identification purposes via a web interface... e.g., environmental variables or whatever?
Thanks in advance,

Capture user credentials? Like in snooping them - grabbing them as they go through the MDS server?
If I understand you correctly - You could put a sniffer on the network connection between the MDS server and the web server and get them. Not possible between the device and the MDS Server. Use HTTPS to protect yourself from this.

Nothing too diabolical - just need the ID they use in our corporate network that authenticates against LDAP, etc. It's so they can retrieve data specific to their account without logging in twice. In many programming languages such an ID becomes a session/environmental variable - was hoping this might be true for blackberry web development as well.

I thought perhaps that was what you were trying to do. One of the things you can do is configure MDS to put the device PIN and/or email address into the header - so you can retrieve that from the request and validate the user on the back-end.
You probably want to start looking here:
