I've been using wordpress for a couple years but have never been asked to implement a single sign-on between Active Directory users and WordPress in an intranet and need help or direction.
So here's what I've been asked to achieve....rather than having users manually login to their new wordpress intranet site with their AD credentials after already login into Windows succesfully, they would like the website to recognize they've successfully logged in via AD and therefore authenticate them into the website automatically. This way users won't have to login twice with the same credentials.
Our environment is listed below:
1. User credentials are in a Windows Server 2003 Active Directory
2. Instranet site resides on an Ubuntu Server from the same network
I am currently using Simple LDAP Login plugin to have users login with their AD credentials and it's working fine but they'd rather have the website automatically detect the user already logged in.
I've also done a lot of research online regarding this subject but they're so many ways to do it that I'm not sure which way to go. I'd appreciate any help or direction, please.
