Subject Re: Geronimo Web Interceptors, WebSSO with Authentication Proxy
Date Thu, 23 Feb 2006 13:57:30 GMT
I'd like to be able to plug third-party authentication providers like
this into Geronimo.  It's possible we can do it with a custom security
login module.  How much do you know about the WebSEAL API?  If there
was some remote call we could make, for example, to supply a username
and password and get back whether it was valid and a list of groups,
that would be pretty easy to integrate.  But I haven't heard of
WebSEAL before, so I'm not even sure if it operates on usernames and
passwords at all.
