SSO with IIS?


#1

I have a customer that I’m developing a solution for on RoR. They have
IIS
today and use Sharepoint for their intranet. Is it possible to have some
kind of single sign-on between these systems? So when a user is logged
in to
ther Sharepoint she will also be logged in to my rails-app? We haven’t
decided yet on what to deploy rails on so I’m open to suggestions… If
we
would use Ruby under IIS (wich I’m a bit hesitant to do after reading
all
the horror stories), would that make it simpler? Can IIS and Rails share
the
same authentication?

i believe there’s a mod_ntlm module for apache…

You might be able to use this…

Hi Jens

not strictly what you talking about, but may help you depending on your
context: you could interact with SharePoint based on his web services (
see
http://www.codeguru.com/csharp/csharp/cs_webservices/tutorials/article.php/c8805/for
an example ), or through a COM API in share point…

just rough ideas

Hi,

I’ve created a .NET httpmodule to interact with RoR via SCGI. It would
be quite doable to implement a SSO solution using this strategy based on
some form of session sharing between rails and .NET (.NET/Sharepoint
keeping RoR sessions alive and pass authentication information to RoR).

Thing in I still have a major issue with uploading binaries which holds
me back from publishing scgi.net publicly. I would be happy to share
sources to solve my and your problem :wink:

Thanks for all the suggestions. I’ll look into it some more and see what
I
can come up with.
