This is something really need in live systems. SG approach is something that we though about as well, good that you achieve that.

CAS architecture seems more cleaner, I'll have a deeper look at it, is somebody working on SSO with stuff like CAS?

If someone has worked on CAS server support for OpenACS, would you mind sharing this, otherwise I will have to do it in the next couple of weeks.

yes, if someone has done, please mention. If not, will be great to have it Malte, I offer help on design implementation and testing.

I assume that project open has an implementation for LDAP SSO (judging from their website). Maybe we can reuse their design if it is not too different from the CAS implementation. Frank, any comments and could we use it?

Malte, did you actually end up looking into using CAS or something similar? I am looking for something that makes OpenACS login truly seamless for people logged into machines on the local AD domain and found a CAS plugin that would allow pretty flexible integration that ties into NTLM. I am wondering what you ended up doing.

We (namely Nima) have written auth-cas, it is currently being tested with one installation (where it seems to work) and we plan to setup a CAS server for cognovis.de which will have the user accounts for all employees of cognovis, so we have a single signon on all customer sites (for us).

If you are in dire need of this package, we can send it "as is" to you, and you can just get rid of certain customizations with which we toyed around in our process so far under the condition you release it once working. Alternatively you can just wait until the have our setup running at cognovis (probably within a months).

Which are the differences between one LDAP and CAS

Hi Malte,

Can you please send me the auth-cas code? I'm working in a very large SSO solution, and I'll need to do something like this as soon as possible. So, if you can help me with the work you already did, I'll be very thankfull.
