Build and implement a single sign-on solution

IBM says that their portal server supports single sign-on. But going through the below given article from IBM, it seems that we need to use separate API to implement single sign-on. It is very strange and I am not able to find-out what level of SSO support exists in IBM Portal. What I concluded is – IBM Portal supports single sign-on for their internal purpose only. For example if you switch form portal view to content publisher view you will not asked for authorization but it will not be the case with custom applications. In other word SSO is supported for IBM applications only, for your own applications you will have to write SSO logic with some (probably open source) API.

So if you are planning to integrate few independent applications and thinking that the IBM single-on will work automatically for you, forget it.
