You could configure Alfresco for "external authentication" (read the docs) and then use another system, like Apache, to set a header with the username that Alfresco will trust as the name of the authenticated user.

Note that this only works nicely with version 5.1, can be made to work with 5.2 - see issues, but does not currently work with later versions.
