    I have been able to make casshib work. Its a thorny thing to setup
and difficult to maintain but it does work. I would recommend you look
at simplesamlphp though as it bridges CAS to SAML with a Shibboleth
IdP without all the effort and configuration complexity. I can help
you with either if you like (although free help is always fairly slow,
so beware :-)).
