Plone UI for CAS login.

Project description


collective.castle is a Plone 3.0 (and up) user interface for Products.CAS4PAS. CAS4PAS enables CAS-based authentication in Zope2 site containing PAS (the Pluggable Authentication System). All Plone 3.0 sites contain PAS.


To install, simply include the egg in your buildout (don’t forget to hook up the zcml). Then, install CAS4PAS as a plugin as usual (see CAS4PAS documentation). Finally, install collective.castle from the Plone control panel. Your site is now CAS-enabled!

You should remove the stock Plone login portlet so as not to confuse users. You may, optionally, add the CAS Login portlet. Alternatively, you may simply let users log in using the ‘Log in’ link at the upper-right of the Plone window, as this is CAS-enabled.
