I implemented a CAS-based authentication mechanism for ArchivesSpace:


I believe it can be used as the basis for implementing other SSO systems, given that it is built on OmniAuth.  We tend to use Shibboleth/SAML for external services, and CAS for internal, so I haven’t pursued such an implementation.

Feel free to fork the above repo; I’m happy to answer any questions about it.
