From Authentication Tools for Joomla! (JAuthTools)
The Single Sign On project is an attempt to provide a unified user login and authentication event for web based clients within a corporate infrastructure. SSO contains tools for automating this and providing a simple framework for integrating this into the Joomla! framework (both 1.0.x and 1.5.x).
This project incorporates the following major SSO systems:
- eDirectory IP based Lookup
- Server Level HTTP Based Authentication
- IP Based Authentication
- Intersite SOAP SSO enables Joomla! sites (1.0 and 1.5) to share users
Additionally to support SSO, User Sources are used to populate information and create users.
