Filr Desktop Clients support SSO with LDAP user Authentication

In an enterprise, LDAP Authentication is most commonly used by User(s) to authentication to the network/hardware. Since Filr clients are one of the network elements within the enterprise, I see a need to enhance Filr Desktop clients to support Single Sign-On(SSO) with LDAP authenticated user.

to clarify, you mean SSO in terms of smithj is logged into the workstation, therefore smithj just opens filr rather than authenticating to it?

Keyshield SSO integration already deliver this feature ? are you mean without Keyshield ?.

I'd love to see easy integration with more SSO providers. At least within the education realm, Jasig CAS would be an excellent option.

Keyshield SSO integration seems to be only for the filr web app at the moment, not for desktop client...

Any news on this? I think the lack of SSO through to the Filr client from the Windows desktop login is a key inhibitor for Filr's use in corporate environments. At this point, most such environments have domain-joined Windows workstations so perhaps kerberos would be an easier way to achieve this for Windows than writing a login provider.

Hi Paul, We havn't yet started looking at this considering other items in priority for Desktop client (Long Path name support and others). Have noted your point. Will let know once we get to this. Regards, Dev

Think this involves quite some work in the front and backend. Maybe we could leverage the framework that the ZCM team has build for this and leverage that for authenticating the Filr Client and Office Apps case a valid auth was found. The frameworks supports both eDir and AD (but could also leverage any other LDAP source). The framework is able to cache credentials in the local store too so the user would not have to save the credentials locally in an 'less save' way (assumtion).

Thanks Dev. Good point Sebastiaan - I think the ZCM team will have exactly the right knowledge and experience for this.
