Cassava CAS Server

Cassava provides authentication services based on the Jasig CAS protocol.

Cassava allows WordPress to act as a single sign-on authenticator using the Central Authentication Service (CAS) protocol.

That way, users on your WordPress install may be able to access different applications that support the CAS protocol by providing a single set of credentials and without exposing the user's password.

By default, CAS method URIs are provided under the wp-cas endpoint:

  • /wp-cas/login: Allows a remote service to request that a user authenticate on the CAS server. Will redirect back to the remote service along with a service ticket.
  • /wp-cas/logout: Terminates the single sign-on session. May optionally redirect the user back to the remote service.
  • /wp-cas/validate [CAS 1.0]: Allows a remote service to validate a service ticket forwarded by the user on redirect. Returns a plaintext response.
  • /wp-cas/proxy [CAS 2.0]: Provides access to remote services with proxy tickets in exchange for proxy-granting tickets. Returns an XML response.
  • /wp-cas/proxyValidate [CAS 2.0]: Allows a remote service to validate a service or proxy ticket forwarded by the user on redirect. Returns an XML response.
  • /wp-cas/serviceValidate [CAS 2.0]: Allows a remote service to validate a service ticket forwarded by the user on redirect. Returns an XML response.
  • /wp-cas/p3/proxyValidate [CAS 3.0]: Allows a remote service to validate a service or proxy ticket forwarded by the user on redirect. Returns an XML response.
  • /wp-cas/p3/serviceValidate [CAS 3.0]: Allows a remote service to validate a service ticket forwarded by the user on redirect. Returns an XML response.

There are a few client integration libraries available for CAS, as well as a handy guide for CASifying several existing applications. Independent WordPress installations may integrate with Cassava using a client plugin such as CAS Maestro.

Please follow and contribute to Cassava's development on Github.
