Start by selecting a SSO (single sign-on) product to use and then dig into the selected vendor's/product's documentation. Most companies I've seen implement SSO have bought Netegrity SiteMinder (which costs god-knows-how-much) but you'll probably want to look into other options as well. Here's some links I found by Googling:,id,587,nodeid,147.html

Any open source tool is available for single-sign-on like Nitegrity SiteMinder?

Don't know anything about the product mentioned, but some good open source java options are CAS (from Yale University) and JOSSO (available on sourceforge).
I agree. Here's the link:
