Additionally, people have reported some degree of success integrating the following SSO systems with JIRA and/or Confluence:
JIRA and Confluence integrate with SSO system Seraph, the Atlassian authentication library. Seraph is a very simple, pluggable J2EE web application security framework developed by Atlassian and used in our products.
Seraph allows you to write custom authenticators which will accept the login creditentials of your existing single sign-on system.

There has been discussion of integrating with Siteminder on the mailing list that may be applied to JIRA integration. All third-party code must be treated with caution - always backup your Confluence instance before use. If you create a custom SSO plugin and would like to contribute it to the user community, please let us know on a support ticket.
