Build your own CAS client

As a lot of CAS clients already exist, there is little opportunity to develop a CAS client and it should be avoided as much as possible. Indeed, creating your own client is not an easy job and you’re most likely to generate security breaches.

Though, if you really need to create your own CAS client, please be aware of these incomplete guidelines:

  • Rely on a static internal configuration instead of leveraging the behaviour on received inputs which can be forged
  • Ensure that all outside inputs are properly decoded and encoded when used calls to CAS or other services
  • Ensure that input is validated and that overly large inputs are discarded.
