The Neon library which is used by davfs2 to access the server already supports GSSAPI. But of course your system must be prepared for this (e.g. you probably need Kerberos properly configured if you want to use AD). I am not involved in this and will not do.

Please consult your systems manuals as well as http://webdav.org/neon/ to use GSSAPI.

I create similar feature request, described here https://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/index.php?57589 - it provides more general customization, that will support any other auth methods.
