Single sign-on for web access with Notes authentication

When creating a hybrid application that uses a Notes client and Web access, single sign-on is required.

Currently, there is no way to pass the token with @urlopen or NotesHTTPRequest.

I need a way to get the LtpaToken cookie using the Notes client authentication.

    I had a use for the NotesHTTPRequest side of this just today, where I wanted to call REST APIs deployed via OSGi on the Domino server to share logic. I think the production servers use LTPA tokens, but I didn't want to bother binding to the C API to generate such a token "manually".

    I worked around it by adding a secret header value that the JAX-RS handler accepts to allow act-as-user, but that's not practical for any other similar situation.

    A use case would be an Notes client application where you use a web page to display something more complex like a pie chart or graph. You don't want the Notes user to have to authenticate when they already have.

    What is the reason for not using existing federated authentication options like SAML ? When configured correctly a browser user would not be prompted for username/password at all.
