Security Patterns: Single Sign On across Web Applications and Web Services

Also, the web applications need to access a set of back-end services with the logged-in user's access rights and the back-end services will authorize the user (end user) based on different claims, like role.

This articles tries to list all lessons I learned in this rather epic journey.
