Subject Re: Hints for Integrating Custom Authentication?
Date Mon, 11 Jan 2010 01:29:51 GMT

Last year I implemented jspwiki with our app using a custom login module. 
I had to write some pretty custom auth - jspwiki is only accessible from 
our app and only after our app logs authenticates the user.

I won't bore the list with details unnecessarily, but if it may help you, 
let me know and I'll post details.

Hints for Integrating Custom Authentication?

I'd like to integrate JSPWiki with our company's Web-based single sign
on system (SSO).  I've figured out how I can plug in a custom
authenticator to validate the username/password specified on the
JSPWiki login page, but this won't work with our SSO.

To be more specific, our SSO is implemented somewhat like Kerberos,
where the application does not have access to the credientials but
simply delegates to another server for authentication.  Thus, I  won't
have a login page on JSPWiki at all -- I just want to plug in some
code that will provide whatever user information JSPWiki might need
(and redirect unauthenticated requests to the remote server).

It's not clear to me what I should subclass and how to configure
JSPWiki to use it.  Any hints about how to do this would be greatly
