[Zope] SSO

Hi there,

I try to set up Zope with Shibboleth SSO. Therefore I need to delegate  
authentication to Apache which should then pass the REMOTE_USER  
environment variable to Zope. Am I understanding right, that for this  
purpose I have to use the not so recommended fastcgi configuration?

With the recommended RewriteRule I successfully receive the  
HTTP_REMOTE_USER header var in the REQUEST object, but not the  
REMOTE_USER environment variable. However, going this route would mean  
messing with the existing code, which uses REMOTE_USER currently set  
by Zope.

I appreciate any help.

Thank you,
