The main dependency is on the package cl-gss, which uses is an FFI wrapper around the GSSAPI library.

Usage information

First, make sure you have a keytab file that contains the service credentials for the principal HTTP/domain where domain is the fully qualified domain name of the HTTP server.

Before starting the Hunchentoot server, register the keytab with GSSAPI using the following function:

(cl-gss:krb5-register-acceptor-identity file)

Once this is done, every Hunchentoot handler function needs to be wrapped in a call to SPNEGO-AUTH. Here is a simple example. Assuming the original content of the handler looked like this:

(defun handler-function ()
  (setf (hunchentoot:content-type*) "text/plain")
  "You should be authenticated here")

When enabling single sign-on, the content should look like this:

(defun handler-function ()
  (hunchentoot-single-signon:spnego-auth #'(lambda (name)
                                             (setf (hunchentoot:content-type*) "text/plain")
                                             "You should be authenticated here")))

The callback is called with an instance of CL-GSS:NAME which can be used for authorisation. You can retrieve the name of the princpial using the function CL-GSS:NAME-TO-STRING. Check the cl-gss package for further information.
