> Single Sign-On Component
> ------------------------
>          Key: JS2-129
>          URL: http://nagoya.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-129
>      Project: Jetspeed 2
>         Type: New Feature
>  Environment: all
>     Reporter: Roger Ruttimann
>     Assignee: Roger Ruttimann
>      Fix For: 2.0-M1

> Introduction
> ----------------
> Since a user is logged in into the portal he/she should never be asked to login again
to see any content. Web portlets or IFrame portlets which refer to external (to the Web Portal)
sites might be only visible after a login (if the target site requires authentication). This
behavior can be annoying especially if the portal integrates  different applications that
all require authentication.
> Proposal
> ------------
> The J2 framework will be extended with a component (SingleSignonComponent) that does
a lookup in the database to find credentials for a site (url) and a jetspeed user. The credentials
could be assigned to a user, group or a role (Priority needs to be defined like User, Group,
Role or better order should be customizable).
> For the first implementation two modes will be supported:
> Username/password (HTTP Post)
> --> Portlets (IFrame, Webpage) will call into SingleSignonComponent with the site
(url) and the principal. The returned credentials can be used to add them as parameters to
the URL
> Basic Authentication (HTTP Basic Authentication)
> --> Since many sites use Basic Authentication another API updates the request so that
it uses BasicAuthentication with the credentials returned by the lookup (site, principal).
> At a later stage the SingleSignonComponent API could be extended with certificates and
cookie based authentication.
