Initial environment setup - Pg. 108

Before setting out to implement the scenario, we recommend that you keep the following points in mind: Implementing SSO requires you to enforce a similar password policy on all effected systems. In this scenario the systems discussed are Samba (For Windows clients), SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10, and IBM i5/OS. SSO is a fairly complex system to implement. It is also a custom solution that can change according to requirements. What we discuss and implement is a sample scenario for login authentication for users of Windows, Linux, and i5/OS systems. We integrate a system where the users use a single set of username/password to log in to any system in this network. All users accounts are created and maintained using scripts that run on Linux and i5/OS. These scripts propagate the changes to all systems and also keep future changes synchronized. Initial environment setup This section provides the information for initial setup of the scenario environment where we assume you have not implemented any type of SSO mechanism yet. Downloading the scenario package Download a scenario package ( file) for implementing the solution being discussed.
