Hello, my name is Aaron Nagao and I'm an app developer for the ASSU (Associated Students of Stanford University). I have limited development experience so I wanted to get some clarification on WebAuth's ProxyPass setup.
I envision the app will redirect to a proxy server (say 22.214.171.124/proxy1.stanford.edu), have the student enter his SUID/password at the WebAuth login screen, and then the APP can parse whatever HTTP headers are returned. Is this even possible? If I were to request a virtual host (say ASSUActivitiesFair.stanford.edu), it asks for an actual website address of the content the virtual host should proxy for, but in my case the content would be a native app that is not hosted on the web.
Please clarify any misconceptions I may have, as I am a novice developer. I am simply looking for a way to authenticate SUIDs (so that a student doesn't sign up his friend for hundreds of mailing lists).
Thank you in advance for your time,
