Enable SSO in Applications

Hi All,
I wanted to implement SSO for applications, Here is exactly what i want to achieve.

Single Sign-on my applications, I am just curious if is there any module in PAM so that i can tell him to look for my id in Linux box and use that id to look for the password and username corresponding to that application and login to the application using that username and password e.g.
I have an application e.g. pptest.

Now when i run this application it will look for my id and go to pam module where it has maintained one password database and there look for my username and password corresponding to pptest and login to the application without asking for username and password.

Please let me know if there is someway in which i can acheive this for all PAM awareapplications.

you really should use something designed for SSO like LDAP. With OpenLDAP you can have your *nix accounts, application accounts and web accounts all in the same place managed from one spot.
