SchoolTool CAS plugin provides support for single sign-on with other applications on a school intranet. If you’re already using CAS at your school, this is a no-brainer. Otherwise, you’ll probably need to do some research on the CAS website first . Note that using CAS authentication requires the installation and maintenance of a CAS authentication server. There are CAS modules for Moodle and other web applications popular in schools.
Install python-schooltool.cas from SchoolTool PPA:
sudo apt-get install python-schooltool.cas
Configure CAS authority (add to configuration):
$ sudo vim /etc/schooltool/standard/schooltool.conf
And add to the file, where “my.cas.server” is replaced by the URL of your CAS server:
%import schooltool.cas <cas_authority> server https://my.cas.server </cas_authority>
$ sudo vim /etc/schooltool/standard/plugins/cas.zcml
Put this line (only) in that file:
<include package="schooltool.cas" />
$ sudo service schooltool restart
SchoolTool should now redirect logins to your CAS server.
