As Matthew said, you can't do this unfortunately without another
environment.

Could this be done with a custom authentication class?

It would be tricky. You would have to create a table or something that
maintains the user sessions based on source IP and login ID or
something. The challenge would be if you have multiple IDP's in a
cluster, then you would have to create some webservice which can be
queried. The additional problem would be how to get around logout
events. Lets say someone closes their browser. You would have inform
this webservice about that. So...lots of challenges to make this
work....

It would be interesting to see if this could be exposed in the API, as
the IDPs already have a way of knowing the session count. I don't think
that's the case today, but it would probably be worth an enhancement
request.
