Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm currently working on several IT projects for a large organization (100k+ members). I'm thinking on providing some kind of unification and integration of all websites that I'm designing.

So my question is, what are the best practices for such integration?

I'm using mainly two php-based engines: WordPress and Q2A

What I would like to achieve:

  • Provide Single-Sign-On (SSO) for all websites managed by me.
  • Exchange information between pages, something like user's top-bar on StackExchange
  • Provide a SSO plugin for WordPress (there is a lot of sub-organizations in this organization, most of them have simple WordPress based webpages; I would like to provide them with a plugin that allows loging by the users via unified SSO).

So what are the best practices? Is the SSO mechanism itself powerfull enough to achieve that or should I look for some modification of it?
