Single Point of Login

1 post in this topic

This idea might be a bit tricker to implement than most. The feature request would be to add a custom login screen to each (or the primary) desktop that once logged in would then login all other connected machines. The best thought I have to actually implement this would be a window manager hack to display a custom login screen that otherwise locks the machines, then an encrypted password store to control the actual remote login of each machine that is decrypted on demand based on the password hash entered along with a way to bypass the screen to get to the default operating system login screen. Not sure how feasible this is based on demand/your budget/etc - but I'd love to no longer need to lock/unlock 5 different machines whenever I get up from my desk.
