P: 20
Hi everbody!

i need single sign on software for our php website , For all application, because we used visual basic and php, and another things so we need software to do single sign on , that the user logs once to his page , and logs out when ever he want .

as i said this software must be for all application i mean it shoud not be written by aprogramming language , i;m looking for this product , but till now i found software under the name sso (single sign on) , but it does not do that for me , it provides some security i don't know what to type in google in order to find what i'am looking for.

if any one have an idea about this software please give me help!!

thanks alot....

I am not sure exactly what you want to do. Do you want to allow multiple web-based applications to use the same login credentials used to login to the OS? If so, are all the web applications custom-built or are you using proprietary/commercial software that you would like to add SSO to?

in our website user has to enter his name & pw , to log in to the website and get his right permissions , and because the db used have high security that not everything is available for all users , we don't want to keep asking the user for his account , every time he opens apage , we want to take his account once , and make it present in all pages, and this is the work of sso , there are softwares available for this , they are not written for application on acertain language , and this what we need because as isaid we used more than one language in programming .
these softwares are installed and then it can automatically activate sso on you'r website .

and to make it more clear , in our website a php page may open a visualbasic application , on this application permissions are limited according to the user, website has to know the user permission but the problem is that you can't transfer variables to the visual basic and the other applications .. and so we have to use these softwares which are much easier for us.

i hope i can find that ...
thank you

We had a similar situation in a company I worked for previously. We used SiteMinder made by Netegrity which is now CA. Here is a link to their current product page: http://ca.com/us/products/product.aspx?ID=5262

It is a fairly expensive product, but from what I remember, all the options we had were equally expensive.

I hope this helps.

Are you looking for a ready-made product to drop in, or are you open to the idea of setting your own up?

what we need is a product for sso , not an application written in php or other language..

the problem is that i need to transfer a variable from php page to asp , but i couldn't , i spent alot of time searching for this but what i got is that you can't do that ..

so i thought of installing those products ..

have you any idea about transfering variables from php page to asp page..
itried using cookies but it did't work !
or if you know a product for sso like the one Poe
gave me..

thanks ...

Eww. You shouldn't use cookies for anything other than "remember my username." You can send variables using GET and POST methods to and from any language. They are HTTP governed and have no bias towards one particular language.

So, you post a form from a PHP page to an ASP page, and the ASP page gets the posted variables.


Also, for staying logged in, you could access sessions through a database that all applications have access to (which is pretty much the only way to do it).
