django-mama-cas 0.9.0

A Django Central Authentication Service (CAS) single sign-on server

Latest Version: 2.3.0

MamaCAS is a Django Central Authentication Service (CAS) single sign-on server. It implements the CAS 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 protocols, including some of the optional features.

CAS is a single sign-on protocol that allows a user to access multiple applications after providing their credentials a single time. It utilizes security tickets, unique text strings generated and validated by the server, allowing applications to authenticate a user without direct access to the user’s credentials (typically a user ID and password).
