Build and implement a single sign-on soltuion - Active Directory Server authentification

Build and Implement A Single Sign-On Solution

Active Directory Server authentication
Unfortunately, CAS does not come with any truly useful authenticators. The default authenticator simply verifies that the username and password are identical. In the educational portal project I use Microsoft's Active Directory Server to store the user profiles. So I needed to extend the CAS server to authenticate the username and password against the Active Directory Server.
