A project proposal from a prospective Google Summer of Code student participant

Single Sign-On (or Central Authentication Service) is actively deployed in large organizations, especially universities and colleges. I plan to build a module that integrates Single Sign-On (SSO) or Central Authentication Service (CAS). It will help end users by eliminating extra registration /login process, and integrating organizational access control.

There are many SSO/CAS in the market. The following services are on my short list to integrate:

  1. JA-SIG Central Authentication Service
An open source CAS originally developed by Yale University, JA-SIG has been deployed in over 80 universities worldwide, and has a user base of more than one million

2. Shibboleth Like JA-SIG, Shibboleth is actively adopted in Europe, and it is estimated to have a user base of over 4 million!

If time possible, I would also like to integrate Open Id and Windows LiveId. However, my priority is JA-SIG & Shibboleth, since they are open source and adopted in many educational institutions. I think XWiki is an enterprise level application and by integration with enterprise level single sign-on, XWiki will be more appealing to educational institutions for central (hosted) installation.
