a CAS plugin for repoze.who

Project Description


repoze.who.cas is a repoze.who plugin that allows the use of a CAS server as an authentication provider. It allows you to specify a CAS server against which your users can authenticate. Once they authenticate against the CAS server, they’ll be redirected to your application in such a way that their identity will be injected into the WSGI environment with a key that you can specify.

Example who.ini

As follows:

use = repoze.who.plugins.cas:make_plugin
cookie_name = someapp-cas
secret = ahardtoguessthing
cas_login_url =
cas_validate_url =

request_classifier = repoze.who.classifiers:default_request_classifier
challenge_decider = repoze.who.classifiers:default_challenge_decider
remote_user_key = REMOTE_USER

plugins = cas

plugins = cas

plugins = cas
