Understanding what the basic requirements are, more specific requirements for setting up SSO, is as follows:
Servers:

Single Sign-On Using Cookies for Web Applications
ABSTRACT
The proliferation of web applications forces users to manage multiple user names and passwords daily. Various single sign-on solutions that depend upon PKI, Kerberos, or password-store have been proposed, but they require client side infrastructure and new administrative steps. Single sign-on in a web based intranet environment can be achieved using http cookies. This paper analyses cookie security issues and proposes a cookie based single sign-on architecture.

Hi Graham,

Sure and thank you for your offer. SSO is a phase that I see it happening in next 2~3 months but I need to go over it and prepare but for sure I will contact you. My questions is what kind of support can I get ?
