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).
