Kerberos module for ruby?

(snacktime) #1

Is there a kerberos module anywhere for ruby? I wasn't able to find anything
after searching around so thought I would ask here.

Hmm. I need to put together a single sign on module and kerberos was my
first choice as an authentication source. I'm also planning on releasing it
under an open source license. ldap would also work but I hate having ldap as
a dependancy for something that should be relatively simple. Not that
kerberos is all that simple, but at least it's designed for the job. Any
other ideas on what to use that is available to ruby?

The single sign on will be modeled after CAS. I wrote a perl implementation
about a year ago since I didn't want to introduce java into our environment.
Redoing it in ruby should be fairly simple.

I dont have much idea about pearl,but java does support Kerberos.ldap would
be relatively a complex process for your requirement.
