SSO from Sun Java System Access Manager to SharePoint Portal Server 2003

If you've tried to configure single sign-on with Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2003, you'll know that can be a bit... non-trivial. The Sun Java System Access Manager policy agent engineering team have been working on extending the existing agent for IIS to allow single sign-on into SharePoint (and Outlook Web Access, but that's another story...).

Robertis Tongbram and Marina Sum just wrote this scenario as an article over at Sun Developer Network.

Of course, all Access Manager policy agents also work with OpenSSO, Access Manager's open source alter ego, so when Policy Agent for IIS 6 Hotpatch 8 hits the street it'll work with OpenSSO, too.
