    JBoss and JBoss Portal SSO authentication, please help

      Hi,

      Currently I'm investigating the possibilities of SSO between a JBoss AS and a JBoss portal instance both running on a separate physical server, preferably not clustered.
      Reading through JBoss portal documentation I find there a different possibilities to accomplish SSO, but none of them is mentioned in the JBoss AS documentation. Configuration for all of them is fine when done on JBoss portal, but I get stuck configuring them on JBoss AS.

      From JBoss portal reference documentation:
      - Tomcat valve configuration using Treecache; not really an option since it requires a cluster;
      - SSO using CAS; no clues on how to configure for jboss AS
      - JOSSO; no clues on how to configure for jboss AS

      From JBoss WIKI:
      - JBossso: SSO option for JBoss AS, but doesn't seem to support JBoss portal in the current release.

      Another option is using opensso. But documentation on JBoss integration is very scarce.

      I'm kinda stuck now. There seem to be a lot of options for SSO, but none of them seems to be trivial to implement for my setup. Googling my way through the SSO forest I find lots of hits mentioning SSO and JBoss portal, but nearly nothing on SSO and JBoss AS, except JBossso.

      Has anyone accomplished a SSO setup between AS and portal ? What is the preferable setup and where can I find a *working* howto describing the SSO configuration ?
