[ferret_users] [Fwd: Re: OPeNDAP authentication]

   Hi all,

Following a discussion on opendap-tech list, does ferret, as opendap client, support SSO connection (in the case an opendap server is protected by this authentication service) ? If no, is this modification planned ?

Yes, as both Patrick and John suggest, Hyrax depends on Tomcat for  
security. Here's the documentation on that: http://docs.opendap.org/index.php/Hyrax_-_OLFS_Configuration#Authentication_.26_Authorization

The C++ library and new C client-side library (and thus new netCDF DAP  
access) support cookies which is, I believe, what is required for  
single sign on systems, although more might be required on the server
