django-cas-provider is a provider for the Central Authentication Service. It supports CAS version 1.0. It allows remote services to authenticate users for the purposes of Single Sign-On (SSO). For example, a user logs into a CAS server (provided by django-cas-provider) and can then access other services (such as email, calendar, etc) without re-entering her password for each service. For more details, see the CAS wiki and Single Sign-On on Wikipedia.
