Hi there!

I badly need help. I am task to do a Single Sign on application across multiple web applications. Each web application with their own authentication mechanism. The Single sign on application will be authenticating from an OID LDAP server which i can do so far.
My probem is how can i bypass/skip the login page of each web application. I am thinking of supplying encrypted username and password automatically by passing these parameters to URL with POST method.
What i am thinking is mimicking the behavior of logging in programmatically. Can I do that?

Please help. Thanks a lot.

Maybe the server you're using supports SSO? For instance, Tomcat does, and I would imagine that others do as well. You might also look intro projects like CAS, JOSSO and OpenSSO (all linked in the Security FAQ).

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
