Reply To: Identity Management – Central Authentication Service (CAS)


CAS is definitely an Authorization service. I’m not sure it qualifies as an Identity Management service.

Given the increased adoption of AD, what is the long term plan for CAS? Is there a convergence between the two services planned? If CAS is to continue, is there a documented way that we can address the secondary authorization question for sites and services using CAS using group membership?

Where does LDAP fit into the service boundaries of CAS and AD?
