Re: SSO possible with web apps?
in http authentication there is something called realms that helps with
this problem. i don't know how it applies to various applications though,
and is probably independent of openldap?

> Here is my situation. In our company, we have multiple open source web applications that we use. Some are web apps that are under active development by others (like Metadot and Mantis), and some we have developed in-house in PHP or Perl. Each is capable of using an LDAP server for authentication. The web apps are running on 3 different Apache servers. We're not running any J2EE or anything like that. Just simple mod_perl and mod_php apps.

My boss would like to have things set up in such a way that when a user logs into one application and is authenticated against the common LDAP server, they won't need to retype their user_id and password for any of the other applications.
