[#945] SimpleSaml based auth plugin



Detailed description

SimpleSAMLphp (https://simplesamlphp.org/) is an award-winning application written in native PHP that deals with authentication. It would be nice to have a auth plugin based on simplesaml added to fusionforge.

An implementation for such auth support was added to a custom fusionforge project in 2012 (see https://scm.fusionforge.org/anonscm/gitweb?p=fusionforge/users/rhabacker.git;a=tree;f=gforge/plugins/simplesaml;hb=refs/heads/branch-5.0-sag) and needs to be converted to a fusionforge auth plugin.

Since newer simplesamlphp versions are provided by the composer package manager, the plugin would need to use this to install the required php packages, rather than including a specific version of simplesaml which can become outdated relatively quickly.

Found in debian: https://pkgs.org/download/simplesamlphp

My bad on SUSE. Meaning, we could need to rebuild on SUSE as we do on CentOS.

At https://software.opensuse.org/package/simplesamlphp?search_term=simplesaml I only see CenOS support.

About SimpleSAML: it would be a great idea. Not sure to have the time to work on this topic.

About Composer : well.... always a tough question. Lot of users just use the fusionforge deb/rpm packages. So not sure to move to composer. The good news is SimpleSAML is packaged for Debian/CentOS/SUSE.

Would it be a good idea to move towards composer for all external dependancies?

I appreciate it would probably be a big job but there is no need to do it all at once and it can be done slowly over time as part of other work.
