That's an interesting alternative to SAML. Thank's for the link.

But as far as I understand this plugin can by default also only be used 
for shared authentification (meaning that two applications share the 
same user-database), or do you use it for 'real' SSO? (With that I mean 
that the user is automatically logged in to both applications if he logs 
in to one of them.)

Sorry, if it's somehow confusing, but I'm trying to achieve the latter. :-)
