Depends on what authentication types you want to use, and how you want
to use them.

The proxy needs the ability to ask the DC about credentials.  If you use
a prepared helper, decide the auth scheme and look at what the helpers
for that scheme can do.

What do you mean by "common" ?

LDAP requires credentials for the proxy to login to the DC with, in
order to check credentials etc. So it may or may not work off-domain.
