    Moodle / HAP+ integrated authentication?

    Hi,

    We'd like to setup a website on IIS 7.5 which combines Moodle and Home Access Plus. Ideally, we'd like just one place to login, after which access to the component parts is unimpeded by additional logins.

    I'm fairly proficient at website technology - html, css, javascript etc., but my knowledge of the server side of things is sketchy :-) I know HAP+ uses forms based authentication, and I've got LDAP authentication working on Moodle, but what I'd like to do is use just one method of authentication for both.

    Any ideas? Is this feasible?

    Thanks,
    John

    This will probably be more difficult to implement than you think, made more difficult by the fact they use different languages.

    You ideally need some form of a Single Sign On mechanism, like a SAML based setup (Shibboleth etc). HAP doesn't support this and I can't see Nick being in a rush to make it support it either, it's a nightmare!

    You could probably bash something together using cookies and a database they can both access, but it's not going to be pretty and I wouldn't fancy using such a thing.

    Personally, I'd feel happier with HAP having to reauthenticate the user - its defintley something you don't want unauthenticated access too if Moodle was to be compromised.
