Deciphering SSO cookiee in COM

I have an ancient application that has a COM object than handles user authentication. We now want to make this application single sign on via EP6. If I could retrieve the user's ID from the SSO2 cookiee value, that would solve all my needs. I've searched the forums and sdn with little luck finding info on doing this from the COM environment. I can get the cookiee value to the COM object, but I need to get the user ID from that. Does anyone have any information on how this can be done?

Thanks,

Joe

    Joseph,

    would a C library be fine for you? If so, take a look at

    http://service.sap.com/patches and navigate to

    Support Packages and Patches -> SAP Technology Components -> SAPSSOEXT -> NT/i386 and try the file:

    SAPSSOEXT_0-10002921.ZIP

    It's a little tricky to work with but it's definitely functional. Other alternatives for parsing MYSAPSSO2 cookies include Java oder JNI, pure Java, a IIS-compatible ISAPI filter.

    Regards,

    Dominik

    The C Library may work. The IIS ISAPI filter sounds like it may be wide-ranging useful to us, I'll do some searching and see if I can find some info on it.
