Hi,

In brief: "Single sign-on (SSO) is a specialized form of software authentication that enables a user to authenticate once and gain access to the resources of multiple software systems."

Implementing SSO would depend on the type of application you have in mind whether its Intranet based or Extranet based etc. Check the Part III - Access Management and Single SignOn here.

Hi,

Its really difficult to explain this giving code in C#.

So just very abtract level idea to implement SSO:

Basic level steps:

- Create one common database for all your intranet applications using your choice of database
- Database means it must have a table common across all the applications which contains user specific information like credentials, some user specific personal info etc
- Create your own registration mechanism which will be same across all applications [all will use the same database table to fill up the user info]
- On registration from any application, fill up that user info table [here, its good practice to have email id as userid to sign on]
- On login page, check that table for login credentials and implement proper form authentication here
- So this way once you are registered from any of the application, you will be able to login and use any of your applications which uses your common database for user specific information

Tell me if you need further information,

Please refer the link given by Vikram for SSO, its will be helpful to understand the concept properly,

HTH,
