Yes, at MSU (both CAS and Shibboleth for Single Sign On have been implemented).

See: section 4.2 "Shibboleth Authentication (SSO)" and section 4.3 "CAS Authentication (SSO)"
in the Domain Coordination manual, e.g., loncapa.vcu.edu/adm/help/domain.manual.pdf
for general information.  Note: both will require institution-specific configuration.

Subject: [LON-CAPA-admin] Authentication Changes

Good Morning All:
We currently use LDAP for authentication for LON-CAPA.  Has anyone successfully implemented CAS or Shibboleth authentication?  We're looking to create a seamless experience for our LON-CAPA users.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
