I have trouble visualising the role that CAS and PubCookie play in the
Shibboleth world. We have used neither to this point, Shib is our first
excursion into any sort of Web SSO (other than contrived local schemes in
a couple of cases).
That being the case, should I care about CAS/Pubcookie at this point?
Does it make any sense to start using them? What advantage is there to do
