Implementing SSO in Foswiki

Hello, I am writing to you because I have a problem implementing SSO in Foswiki. I have a website in the same domain as Foswiki, and when I log in to my website, a cookie is created, and I want to use this cookie in Foswiki so I would not have to log in again in Foswiki. In my website I use LDAP, and the same login and passwords are used in both websites (Foswiki and my website) I am using also Webservice, and I see the cookie value and information about session expire from my Website in Foswiki, but I do not know how to use it in SSO. Where should I use it? or maybe You have some other ideas how to do this as simple as possible? Thank You in advance.

Grzegorz, I have no experience with SSO in Foswiki, but have you tried to configure Kerberos keytab file in LdapContrib (

I guess that you might use your cookie to append/update keytab file with needed information.

If this is not an option, maybe you should create a FeatureRequest
