Adding SSO to Existing Infrastructure

Like many organisations before us, we required additional services to support our growing needs. We decided to combine all our demo servers infrastructure under user federated authentication and authorisation. The challenge was to keep our current system free from change while adding additional security (In our case One Time Passwords via Mobile device app).
