Single Sign On for linux


Hi gurus,
I'd like to know your opions about Single Sign On (SSO) for linux (Debian). In my company, clients want to access to different services (FTP, HTTP, Mail, Web Applications ). I think about OpenLDAP and Proxy (Squid, Vulture) to resolve this problem but I don't know if they are secure. Are there others solutions for this SSO problem ? The more secure, the better it is.
Any suggestion will be welcome and thankful.
Kind regards,
Thanh Dat

They are as secure as you want them to be. Some companies even have packaged solutions.

Example:
http://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/De...US/sso-ov.html

However, there are so many possible configurations there is no way to advise you.

Thank you for your reply,
I see that RHEL supports actually: Login, Screensaver, Firefox and Thunderbird and not other services __
Do you have any reference for Debian ?

There is a wonderful, if slightly worrying, service these days called "google".

Learn how to use kerberos with OpenLDAP - and keep in mind what you want to do rather than how you want to do it. It's all the same programs on debian as on redhat - you just pick your configuration for your needs.

You may not find a step-by-step howto for you exact requirements - be prepared to adapt.
