Re: [PhillyOnRails] Rails / PHP / Capistrano

I've had good luck with CAS for SSO.

See here:

There are clients for most frameworks. There is even an plain-old Apache (1 & 2) clients in CPAN. Here is the link to Apach2 module:

For rails and merb, there is a rubycas-client in google code. For a CAS server, you can use rbuycas-server (a camping app also on google code) or the tomcat WAR file on the main CAS site.

And of course there is that open id stuff all the kids are talking about.
Good luck!

This was the option i decided to go with.  It doesn't offer everything i was hoping for, but it was the easiest.  I'm just using fully qualified links from within the rails app to the subdomains and some of the other setup is a little messy, but at least it works.  SSO for all three is nothing more than a pipe dream now...

Isn't it always?  I recently discovered that mod_perl and mod_python have hooks for HTTP authentication.  Actually used mod_perl to get svn using my redmine database for usernames/passwords.

It's got me thinking about ways you could maybe leverage this in other apps to get at least a single set of credentials and potentially SSO as well.  But maybe I should just give up and really master LDAP.
