Integrated authentication with a Ruby on Rails app

Integrating Active Directory with a web app

Sony Music was founded in 1987 and is one of the three major music labels.

The project

At Sony Music, employees use Active Directory to log in as well as a Ruby on Rails app.

They needed to be able to log into the web app automatically with their Active Directory account. If they had no account in the web app, it had to be created automatically and authentication had to be invisible.

This task required technical expertise and we had to delve into the Kerberos protocol Active Directory uses, and to integrate it with a Ruby on Rails solution.
