You can take a toolkit off the shelf to do this, such as OpenSAML or
SourceID, or you can use something like Shibboleth, which is an open source
SAML implementation (SP and IdP) that works fine with SiteMinder's SAML IdP.

The SAML option is, IMHO, a much better idea then continuing to invest in
proprietary SSO unless you already bought and deployed the proprietary code,
or need something that the SAML spec doesn't include.
