I see that VCAC comes with its own IA identity appliance , can you use SSO ( single Sign on ) to log into VcAC?

Yes, if you use the correct version of vCenter Server, see below.

vCAC 6.0 SSO code has a dependancy that is not compatible with vCenter SSO ( 5.5.0a).

Latest version of vCenter Server  5.5.0b and SSO is now compatible.

New vCenter 5.50b is supposed to be compatible with vCAC 6.

 5.5.0b was released on 22 December 2013

confirmation here:-

This upgrade means that you can use vC 5.5b as the SSO destination for vCAC 6.0.  This is very good news since that means one less appliance to install and manage.  This is not in the release notes but I have been able to confirm it with two different people.

This change was too late for us to confirm before the Holidays! we were surprised that 5.5.0b was released this late in the year, because we had just installed 5.5.0a!
