Thanks Sue,

 

Looking at the code, we think it should be pretty straightforward to get the authentication from our SSO app, but we also want to keep the LDAP authentication too...which seem like it might be more difficult!

 

Best regards

 

Ian

We implemented OpenSSO with DSpace 1.5.1 and it required minimal code changes in DSpace.  OpenSSO basically gets a user’s information and passes it to DSpace in the http headers where you then have to extract what you want and pass it to DSpace.

Hope this helps!

Subject: [Dspace-tech] Implementing SSO

 

Hi,

 

I’ve read the previous threads about using SSO with Dspace but wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction of how to get Dspace 1.8 to work with our OpenSSO. We’d really like the swordv2 service document to ask for SSO credentials rather than LDAP. Would I be right in saying that SWORDv2 uses authentication based on the general DSpace authentication method? It seems to.

 

If this is the case, if we implemented SSO for DSpace then SWORD should also use this method.

 

Any help would be great.

 

Thanks

 

Ian
