SSO: How to secure toplevel Page?!

After struggling with understanding the API of the SSO-Class for a while, I finally managed to enable the Authentication via a Cookie set by another webapp underneath the same domain.

Now I want to secure the toplevel-Page of the forum: Is there a way to trigger the redirect to the login-page, whenever someone hits the default page of the Forum ( entering http://myurl/jforum without a set cookie shall redirect to my custom login-page).

Anybody knows how this can be done?!

Cheers
Stefan
