    Portal / Active Directory / Single Sign-On     Bit confused?

    Jorge Vitor Newbie

      Hello everyone,

      I could use some tips regarding JBoss Portal and single sign-on, heres the situation:

      My company wants to migrate to JBoss Portal and integrate it with Microsoft Active Directory.
      They also have an important Java Web Application (running on JBoss AS) with a big user database, which they also want to integrate with Microsoft AD.

      My questions are:

      1 - How can i obtain a single sign-on behaviour for both the JBoss Portal and the Java Application, having the portal as the entry point for the user and Microsoft AD dealing with authentication and authorization for the users?

      2 - After the user is logged on the Portal, how is that "authentication token" transmited to other applications via AD?

      Thanks in advance for any help :)
