That's not what Single Sign On (SSO) means!

SSO is the access control system where system uses only one password, the domain password is also password for other systems and applications the user needs. Signing in to domain sends login information to other systems and applications user needs so that a single login to domain is enough, user does not have to separately login to different systems and applications he/she uses.

A typical SSO environment would be one where user logs in to domain which opens his/her Windows desktop, automatically logs the user to company intranet, and opens Office or Lotus Notes without asking users credentials.

For SSO to work all joined applications and systems have to have the same password. When password to domain expires and is changed it also has to be changed on all SSO systems and applications to match the new domain password.

Thank you for correcting me. I use dumb terminal, as that what we call them. They don't hold the OS and log onto a central server based on the domain you select. Hence they get called Dumb.

We also use SSO with smart cards, so one card will allow you to access everything, it's your PC password, your SAP log in and anything else added to your profile. Maybe SSO was used out of context, but I stand by my Dumb terminal comment!!

Thanks Kari,
I read the SSO, it wasnt what i meant. the thing is that users are set on the domain and each computers are joined into it. then with just adding the user IDs in the domain user list, the personnel or the students could access to any computer in the office, or have more moderated access, that some would have higher level of access. can u tell me how can i construct such domain? or tell me something to help?
