Passing parameters to Confluence from an external source

Currently we have Confluence set up to allow anonymous access however most of our users come from a bespoke software application and we'd like to do certain things based on who they are but without them having the need to have a user account within the actual Confluence system.

Is there any way of passing arguments to Confluence and doing something based on this arguments when the user arrives? I'm thinking in terms of a plugin or somesuch though i'm new to that so wouldn't know where to begin.

For example: http://wiki.example.com/?user=larry&from=Accounting

Could the run plugin (https://plugins.atlassian.com/plugin/details/189) do the trick?

Interesting but I don't think it's quite what I'm after.

You could build a custom plugin with a Servlet Filter Module to filter the requests and redirect the users based on the request parameters.
