SingleSignOn with ADFS in my Classic ASP site?

Posted on 2013-01-02
Last Modified: 2013-02-08
I have a Classic ASP site, hosted on Windows 2003, IIS 6. My client would like to have SSO (SingleSignOn) using his ADFS, instead of my own self built user login system. Is there an easy way to do this, where someone have already built the wheel, so integration will be easy?

My system is SaaS, hosted externally from the client ADFS.

Can someone explain me ADFS structure and how to accomplish this?

Disable anonymous logins, let the user be prompted or authentication, then your ASP have to look at the environment variables to identify the user that logged in and rely on your nternal mask for what rights the user has.

arnold: I guess this will only work when IIS is on same internal network as users. But as I told, this is externally hosted SaaS system, so we cant do this.

One way is they need to periodically export their AD data and for you to import it. Or you can tie your app to proxy/remote connect to their AD.

What options do you have on your own systems?

They are using ADFS (not good old AD) and as far as I can read, this is especially good to do SSO with external providers, like me. But that is as far as I can come...

Your code instead of accessing the local db, will need to connect to their adfs server.
Not sure whether you can use classic asp to remotely exchange SAML messages.
Discusses creating a SSL while maintaining the site as is.
