i had to do this a few months back before sam went opensource. i relied on the apache agent to do auth, and had it pass the authenticated user name and groups in the request environment. the pas plugin for this (really just a generic pass through plugin) is available here.


svn co https://svn.objectrealms.net/svn/public/pasplugins/samagentauth SAMAgentAuth

implementing a full sam agent in zope is a bit of work, its a big stack to do it via the standards based mechanism of webservices. if you really want to go down this route and you have libertyalliance support in you sam installation, you should check out lasso, which will do some of the heavy lifting, but the move to samlv2 pares down the liberty protocols responsibilties to just websvcs so it might not be a long term viable option. internally alot of the sam agents just use a custom protocol that avoids the complexity of the websvc stack.

Hi All,

Is there a plugin or initiative for authentication plugin between Plone / Zope and openSSO (formerly known as Sun Access manager) https://opensso.dev.java.net/

I would like to integrate our plone site into our portal site which is controled by the access manager (openSSO). I have been trying to write the plugin myself but got stuck because I did not know how to access clients (browsers) session cookies with python or zope's api..

What I would like to do is to get the value of the session cookie the access manager sets in the clients browser upon successful login and then invoke the web service via soap with the cookie value which returns the user name that I will then pass over to Zope. However I found this task impossible to do because I was not able to find the way to access client session cookies with python or zope.
Or I'm wrong...??

Please help

Thanks

Serge
