Hi all,

In pursuit of our discussions about linking the OSGeo ID with any  
other hosted tools, I have the following information from our  
operations. Note that SSO integration will likely incur a cost, but I  
am unaware of the specific amount.

The request for an SSO would require a Statement of Work (SOW) which  
needs to come through Services. Once the SOW has been created, the  
Engineering Operations would provide the list of requirements  
expected from the customer. Once the information has been collected,  
they would prepare an instance set that would be applied on the site  
for enabling dual authentication.

The customer may require to do the following (the complete list would  
be specified in the SOW):
1) Provide CollabNet with detailed information about the OSGeo  
subdomain server's cookie format.
2) Appoint a project manager, who would act as an interface between  
Autodesk and CollabNet during this project.

The Engineering Operations would negotiate with the Project Manager  
appointed by the customer to collect more detailed information like:
1) The contents of the session cookie required from the customer's  
site when a user logs in. The contents may include User session ID,  
User name, Email address, Real Name, Organization.
2) The design of the SSO environment.
3) Other information that might be necessary for the dual  
authentication. (a complete list would be provided by the Engineering  

The only difference between today and the future (if there is a more  
standard API) is that currently this information is collected  
manually, and an instance set is applied on the site based on that  
information. But in the future, if the platform has a more standard  
API for this, the information would be collected through GUI and the  
configuration changes would be applied instantly.

Please let us know if this information answered your query. Please  
feel free to get back to us for more information.
