Can you elaborate a bit more?  

The largest issue with SSO is the "keys to the kingdom" dilemma.  SSO is great for alleviating the need to remember a dozen passwords.   Users with too many passwords tend to write them down, use weak passwords, use the same password for everything, etc.  SSO allows them to use a single password to get in to everything, which is great so long as this single password is strong.  The downside is if that single password is compromised then every application the user has access to is also compromised.  This can be mitigated by using multi factor authentication, such as the saved SSO password and a token.

Single SignOn (SSO) is integrating authentication to Active Directory, so that users don't have to authenticate more than one time (Windows Logon) even when using authentication required software as i.e. different web services.
