SSO Suport


I am trying to make a JSR-168 based Portlet application that uses the OpenFire server. I was wondering if the OpenFire server can integrate with CA Siteminder or Sun OpenSSO so that I can avoid passing the user’s password during the xmpp login procedure.

Being a web application inside of a portlet, I want to refrain from asking the user for his/her password as they already entered it in the portal when logging in. Can I pass the PortalSession to Openfire for authentication?

At the moment, no. But it certainly should be easy to do- Openfire does authentication/authorization via the Sun SASL API, so if you can get SASL support for whatever your SSO method is, thats all you need.
