Confluence: Secure access for customers and user licenses

Here is our situation:

1. We want to buy 100 Confluence licenses although we will have more than 100 users. We want some users to login as anon users. The reason being, we use a number of plugins and cannot afford to buy the same tier licenses for the plugins. That is why we want to use less number of licenses.

3. We want some kind of authentication with active directory for the user who visits our Confluence site.

4. We don;t want our Confluence site to be public, but it should be accessible to customers who are authenticated with a login. The Confluence is hosted within our firewall and users are authenticated before we can let them login.

I have these questions:

How to give access to customers without requiring a Confluence license? Should we let them log into our domain and give access as a anon user that doesn't require a Confluence license.

WE don't want them using a VPN to connect to our domain.

Any suggestions are appreciated..

Hi, would it be possible to use a shared login? You can create a login that customers can share?
