CENTRAL AUTHENTICATION SERVICE (CAS) -------------------------------------------------------------------- https://clearinghouse.ja-sig.org/wiki/display/CAS/Home 1. INTRODUCTION The Central Authentication Service (CAS) is the standard mechanism by which web applications should authenticate users. Any custom applications written benefit from using CAS. Note that CAS provides authentication; that is, it determines that your users are who they say they are. CAS should not be viewed as an access-control system; in particular, providers of applications that grant access to anyone who possesses a NetID should understand that loose affiliates of an organization may be granted NetIDs. 2. RELEASE INFO CAS requires J2SE 1.4 and J2EE1.3. Release conents: * "core/src/main" contains the Java source files for the framework * "core/src/test" contains the Java source files for CAS's test suite * "docs" contains general documentation and API javadocs * "target" contains the demo war file * "localPlugins" contains the location for user modifications 3. DISTRIBUTION JAR FILES The "target" directory contains the following distinct jar files and wars: * cas.war - Contents: complete web application ready for deployment. 4. DEPENDENCIES * EhCache 1.1 * J2EE Servlet 2.3+ * JavaMail (and activation.jar). [if using the Web Services] JavaMail can be downloaded at: http://java.sun.com/products/javamail/ http://java.sun.com/products/javabeans/glasgow/jaf.html 5. DEPLOYMENT * Servlet Container that can handle JSP 2.0 (i.e. Tomcat 5.0.28) 6. NOTE If building CAS from the source, running the test cases currently requires an active Internet connection. Please see: http://maven.apache.org/faq.html#ignoring-broken-tests on how to disable the tests.
