UTEP SingleSignOn for Ruby

Authenticate users using UTEP's SingleSignOn


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'utep_sso'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install utep_sso


require 'utep_sso'

# Check if a user is signed in
UTEPSSO.authenticated?(cookies[:UTEP_SE], cookies[:UTEP_SA])

# Authenticate a user using UTEP cookies (will return nil values in the hash for invalid cookies)
UTEPSSO.authenticate(cookies[:UTEP_SE], cookies[:UTEP_SA])
# => {:user_name, :full_name, :email_address, :authenticated, :role_value, :external_user, :@xmlns}

# roles are returned as a bit mask
#  000010 = faculty
#  000100 = staff
#  010000 = student

#  010110 = user that is a student, faculty and staff 

# Deauthenticate a user
UTEPSSO.deauthenticate(cookies[:UTEP_SE], cookies[:UTEP_SA])
