Comms Suite 5 Q&A: Setting up Single Sign-On

Q. I need to set up SSO for Communications Express. What has changed between Messaging Server 6 2005Q4 (Java ES 4) and Messaging Server/Communications Express 6.3 (Comms Suite 5)?

In the prior releases, we needed SSO to maintain authenticated sessions
between two of our HTTP servers. The two HTTP servers are the web
container (web server/app server) for the UWC servlets and the WebMail
server (mshttpd). Going into our Comms Suite 5 (UWC 6.3), we moved the
WebMail server behind the web container.

prior to 6.3
|------- web container(uwc)
web browser ----| (sso between)
|-------webmail server (mshttpd)

in 6.3
web browser----web container(uwc) --- webmail server(mshttpd)

Now in 6.3, we do not require SSO to maintain authenticated sessions
between our internal services. However, we do still support SSO to
co-exist authentication with 3rd Party web applications such as Portal
Server.
