If your application does not reside in the same server than the database, you can't (well technically you can but this is the biggest hole you can ever make in the security which means you have no security at all and anyone can connect to your database).
If you want to be authenticated by Windows AD, you can use Oracle Entreprise User but this requires you buy Oracle Security Option.
