Hi,

I currently have a question of Single Sign On implementation on my head. If any of you have idea, please help.

I would like to implement a single sign on mechanism between two existing systems(A and B) which they already have their own user login information. I am looking for a solution in which the user can login A or B first and then go to the next system(A or B) without further login.

Thanks for your help.

Benson

In your head? Can you be a little more specific?

Single-Sign-On, SSO, isn't something you'll typically want to do a 'roll your own' with. There's quite a bit to it.

In my experience, third party tools like Tivoli Access Manager or WebSeal are preferred thrid party tools to use, as opposed to implementing a solution on your own. Time and money are always mitigating factors of course.

There are also open source Java solutions like CAS and JOSSO; the SecurityFaq links to both.

Easiest way is with HtmlUnit or HttpUnit.

OK, sorry for my unclear question. Actually, I have a JBOSS portal running on A machine, and there is content management system, Alfresco, running on B machine. I want to enable the Single Sign On between them, i.e. user login to JBOSS portal first and then he can access the CMS system all the way without login again.

If you guys still find unclear, please let me know.


Thanks
Benson
