New Work with n-tier Authentication

Time 04/28/09 03:00PM-04:00PM

Session Abstract

With a few notable exceptions, implementations of Web Single SignOn (SSO) systems have concentrated on solving the problem of single signon to a collection of websites. The advent of protocols and implementations supporting federated SSO has extended the model to include websites managed by different organizations. Attention has now turned toward addressing the n-tier problem. After a user logs in to a website, can that application login to backend services as the user without knowing (and thus compromising) the user's credentials? This session will describe two different approaches being taken to this problem: the Shibboleth-uPortal effort, and Shibboleth + Kerberos.
