Integrating web applications into the openSUSE login infrastructure
Ancor González Sosa got hooked on Free Software while studying Computer Sciences in the University at his homeland (Canary Islands) at some point near the year 2000, becoming a GNU/Linux addict. In 2002 he discovered Ruby which quickly became his language of choice (first for Qt based applications and later for web development). Being a very active local Free Software advocate, he was recruited in 2013 by the openSUSE Team at SUSE Linux as a web developer.
Since then, as you can see in his github profile, he has been trying to break the Build Service, openQA, YaST, the Travel Support Program application, software.o.o, progress.o.o, OSEM, Jangouts and several other tools related with the openSUSE project. Since July 2014 he is a proud member of the YaST Team at SUSE.
Every member of the openSUSE community has a single identity that can be used to log into every openSUSE web-based service: from OBS to the forums, from the Wiki to Connect, from Lizards to infinity and beyond. This is possible thanks to the deployment of a technology called NetIQ Access Manager. This talk will provide an overview of this technology and the different existing alternatives to integrate a web application into the openSUSE Single Sign on system, with specific solutions for Ruby on Rails and Perl applications and generic mechanism that can be used for any web technology out there.
