Which handler LDAP SSO

Thanks. I have UsernamePassword configured at the moment and I'm having trouble getting the bind to work so that users can login, but I'll continue to work on that.

However, when running against test shib I'm being shown a login screen, as expected at the moment. When I have the ldap running correctly will the users still be shown this screen if they already currently have valid windows credentials or will I need to configure this with Kerberos? What we have at the moment is users being logged on without being prompted when they access a shibboleth resource internally.

It's RemoteUser as far as the IDP software is concerned. The LDAP authentification will be configured in Apache Tomcat then, which in turn speaks to your LDAP DSA.

UsernamePassword is what you want.

SSO comes from the PreviousSession handler, which is enabled by default and doesn't need any additional configiuration, i.e. it will Just Work.
