I'll give your a concrete example: 

 A developer is connected on his laptop with Windows 7. At startup, he's 
prompted to login to the domain with his credentials. These credentials are 
verified by the RHEL server running IPA. Credentials are correct and the user 
is logged in the domain. => At this point, is this possible ? 

 Now, this user wants to connect through SSH to a RHEL server (another IPA 
client). He uses PUTTY and he is connecting to the server, no login/password is 
required, the authentication is done over his IPA connection. => Is this 
possible ?

 Now, once connected on the RHEL server, he wants to use the command "reboot 
now" but this one is not authorized by the IPA server for this user on this 
server. => Is this possible ?

 Many thanks,

While you can make it sort of work, it will be a lot more difficulty, and will 
never work quite how you want. You would be better off using Active Directory 
or Samba4, and creating trusts between the two domains.

Hi Dimitri, 

Thanks for your response but I'm a little bit confused. Indeed, some users tell 
me that it's possible to join an IPA domain from a windows workstation and you 
say this is not possible. 

I don't have an AD server, I want to configure IPA to act like an AD. My 
network contains Windows/Linux workstations and I want to centrally manage

 If you setup trusts between IPA and AD then yes.
 If not then you need to ssh from the system that belongs to the API domain.
 IPA does not support Windows systems to be joined to IPA domain. But you can 
configure kerberos for Windows and use local Windows accounts. There are some 
HowTos on the wiki about it.
 Alternatively you join Linux systems to AD and use it as your central 
authentication server then SSO would also work but you will loose ability to 
manage your Linux related policies.

 Trusts is probably the best for you but there will be dragons.

 to enable SSO with SSH from a ipa workstation, just edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config 
and make sure the line below is set to yes
 "GSSAPIAuthentication yes"

 If you've just made the change, it won't take effect until SSH is restarted. 
So do the usual service sshd restart.
