I think the missing piece might be a directory server of some kind (Active

That adds a domain called example.com
, using user admin with ldap server
type IPA and prompts you for a password.
Hope that helps.
That's a huge help! Thanks! Our global IT has been talking about setting
up a single sign-on system, but not much progress has been made yet. Any
thoughts on which of these options would be easiest to setup in the short
term? Even better, what would be the best/easiest way to authenticate off
of Google Apps? I'll do some searching on that, but if some one knows that
they support one of the protocols directly, or some way to wrap GA with one
of the supported protocols, that would be greatly appreciated.
We have an LDAP server that syncs to Google Apps, but it does not store
