Federated Single Sign-On for Google Apps in OpenSSO
By superpat on Nov 12, 2008
Hot on the heels of the OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 release comes Wajih Ahmed and Marina Sum's article on configuring Federated Single Sign-On for Google Apps in OpenSSO. With just a few minutes of work, you can be authenticating users in OpenSSO and giving them access to their accounts in Google Apps, including Google Mail, Google Documents and Google Calendar. Take a look at the demo we recorded with Michael Coté a few weeks ago to see the end result.
While this integration has been possible ever since we introduced SAML 2.0 support in Access Manager, it used to require a small amount of custom code to copy the user id into the SAML 2.0 NameID element. With OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0, it's now a simple matter of configuration in the administration console.
To illustrate the article, Wajih has captured the configuration process on video - settle back and enjoy the show.
