Hi All,
during these weeks I work around an interesting thing: SSO.
The SSO, or Single Sing On, is the procedure that allow you to put a password on a system and inherit authorization on all services (in that system).
In our case, we have a Plone with no public areas, so for access to contents every user have to make login on Plone. What our customer ask was a way to inherit the pc authentication, to allow user to bypass login form keeping his name and roles.
This is possible having an Active Directory Server.
The complete procedure for setup is readable following this link: SSO for Plone.
In my case, I didn’t use Likewise or NTLM, but I’d like to see the difference between mod_ntlm2 and mod_auth_kerb.
