Using certificates with CAS Single Sign On

CAS (Central Authentication Service) handle authentication for "CAS enabled" services. Therefore a common authentication with Single Sign On (SSO) could be used with these services. That is, once authenticated with CAS, a user doesn't need to authenticate again when accessing "CAS enable" services, its authenticated identity is passed to the service. It is common to use LDAP directory in addition to get more attributes like groups membership. CAS is open source JAVA (running in a servlet container like tomcat).

This document describes HOW TO setup a CAS server, especially when using X509 certificates to authenticate.
