SSO external authentication based on session attribute

Hi,

Our client uses its own SSO system, which includes one HTTP Filter in charge of managing session attributes in order to identify the user.  As far as I know, Alfresco does not support external authentication based on session attributes.

So, we're thinking about overriding
SSOAuthenticationFilter
from Alfresco in order to develop a customized
wrapHeaderAuthenticatedRequest
able to extract user identification from one specified attribute of session object. Alfresco Share configuration could be as usual: add external authentication entries in
alfresco-global.properties
and modify
web.xml
to replace Alfresco SSO filter with the customized one.

Is there any better way to achieve this?

Thanks in advance.
