Anybody implemented Single Sign On, or can let me know about it? I've used the logon w/no password feature, using the hostid and RACF on the mainframe, but don't know about this much. Thanks!

Well, I've been trying to find out about Single Sign On, and so far, not a whole lot, but perhaps that's because it's a Windows/network type thing and "everybody" already knows about it. This is what I've got so far:
Single Sign On (SSO) provides Teradata users with the ability to be authenticated through network security rather than providing an account and password to logon. Using this feature, Teradata users log on to their computer once and run Teradata client applications accessing Teradata RDBMS without having to provide username, password, and optional account.
This feature is currently only available on Windows NT and Windows 2000 platforms and must be explicitly turned on by the DBA through DBW or DBS Control. For more information on DBW, see Teradata RDBMS Database Windows. For more information on DBS Control, see Teradata RDBMS Utilities Vol. 1. SSO provides the following benefits:
* Enhances site security because authentication mechanisms do not send passwords across the network
* Saves time
Note: This feature requires implementation not only in Teradata RDBMS server software but also in Teradata Utilities Foundation (TUF) client software.
During the release of V2R4.1, SSO was scheduled for implementation in TUF 6.1. Pre-TUF 6.1 applications co-exist with V2R4.1 with Single Sign On effectively disabled. TUF 6.1 and later applications co-exist with pre-V2R4.1 with the feature disabled.
