I am considering whether the professional society for which I am publications editor might usedOMP in our workflow and/or publishing. It looks really great and is running well on my server, but I have one technical question: is it possible to use an external authentication system? I noticed in the config file that there are a bunch of settings commented out for implicit_auth.
I've configured quite a few webapps, but have never run across this term nor have I ever connected another system to shibboleth or exteral authentication.
Can someone tell me whether it would be possible for someone who understands authentication systems better than me to connect this to our member database/authenticaion system in Drupal, and also to register accounts not in that database as well (so external authors/reviewers can register)?
