We run two different web sites from our IBM i. One for students and one for employees. We do not use Apache authentication to access these sites because we found that persistent session would kill the system. (this was years ago and may be different today but we have not attempted to change things) Both of these sites use LDAP to check the username/password against our active directory users and allows access if the authentication to AD does not fail. Many other 3rd party web sites that we use have single signon setup with either Shib or ADFS that will pass a ticket to those systems to bypass authentication. We have been asked if the two web sites hosted on IBM I could also do this. That does not sound like anything we would want to try and code inhouse. Does anyone know of any tool that would do this for us?
