Our approach to this was to use Guacamole in "slave" mode - we added an
agent/daemon that given authentication token, IP, Port, Type of connection
would start a console session - no concept of user and no persistence
required.  The authentication is based on a framework specific to Qstack so
it cannot easily be open sourced regretfully.

Agreed Guacamole is heavier since it is doing a lot of the work the client
would otherwise be doing (novnc handles all the rendering client side) -
but for our purposes it has worked very well.

Hope this helps,
Sverrir
