newbie200 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello, I am currently new to perl. I am trying to implement sso on a perl web app but don't seem to get my head round it. here are the technical details

on apache i downloaded, installed and configured the module. this allowed me to detect a user logged on a computer, I was able to know if the user was in a local domain or global domain. now comes the tricky part. i have to program in my web app an sso which sees the person logged on from apache. I also have ldap configured. It just seems so confusing to me

I would be glad if someone can explain more on this. do i need an sso server? how do i connect my perl webapp to read my apache and get the information required.
