JA-SIG Central Authentication Service
Quick Installation Guide
----------------------------------
This guide is meant to be a quickstart for you configure and install CAS
as quickly and easily as possible. If you need more information,
you can check the CAS website at
http://www.ja-sig.org/products/cas/
and you can subscribe to the CAS mailing list by visiting:
http://www.ja-sig.org/products/cas/community/lists/
Quick Demo
----------
The following steps will deploy the included demo of CAS. Start here if
you're new to CAS and want to see it in action. These steps assume
you will be using Tomcat as your servlet container.
Quick Demo
----------
The following steps will deploy the included demo of CAS. Start here if
you're new to CAS and want to see it in action. These steps assume
you will be using Tomcat as your servlet container.
1. copy modules/cas-server-webapp-VERSION.war to Tomcat's webapps/ directory
2. start Tomcat
3. access the CAS login page by opening up a web browser and visiting:
http://hostname:8080/cas-server-webapp-VERSION/login (see note below)
You should see the CAS login page asking you for your username and
password. The default authentication plugin accepts NetID=password.
Enter in an identical value for NetID and password and click LOGIN.
If everything is set up correctly, you should see a page stating that
you've successfully logged into CAS. Congratulations!
Note: this URL assumes that port 8080 is not blocked by a firewall,
and Tomcat is configured to listen on that port (it is by default).
Since we are only testing CAS, this configuration uses http for transport
rather than https -- this is not something you would do in production.
Customization
-------------
After you've gotten CAS working, one of the first things you will want
to do is create your own skin.
There is one skin included with CAS; Its called "default" If you look in cas-server-webapp/src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/view/jsp/default/ui,
you will see that a skin is made up of the following files:
casConfirmView.jsp displayed when the user is warned before being
redirected to the service
casGenericSuccess.jsp displayed when the user has been logged in without
providing a service to be redirected to
casLoginView.jsp the login form itself
casLogoutView.jsp displayed when the user has been logged out
serviceErrorView.jsp used in conjunction with the service registry feature,
displayed when the service the user is trying to
access is not allowed to use CAS. Note that this
feature is not enabled by default, in which case
all services are able to use CAS.
Steps for creating a custom skin
--------------------------------
Edit each of the pages to appear as you want them. Take care when
you're editing these pages not to change any of the forms or logic tags
unless you're sure you know what you're doing. If you need to include
a css file, put it in cas-server-webapp/src/main/webapp/themes/default/cas.css and reference it
with the following link tag:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="<spring:theme code="css" />" type="text/css"
media="all" />
The "<spring:theme code="css" />" will be replaced with the appropriate
URL to that directory.
