Huntley, Nyce & Associates, Ltd. (HNA) is a
multi-disciplined organization which provides engineering, land
planning and surveying services to the Washington Metropolitan Area
and surrounding regions.
HNA needed a website that served three audiences. The general
public needed a site that described HNA's services and office
locations, along with providing helpful links to municipal
regulations and other relevant information. HNA's clients needed a
secure place from which to download the latest information about
their projects. And HNA's employees needed an intranet to assist in
their day to day operations. HNA was using Active Directory to
allow its employees access to their network, and wanted to use the
same login information for the intranet for simplicity's sake. The
problem was that they did not want their clients to be included in
Active Directory, and the website needed a single, unified login
process for everyone in order to keep the maintenance costs
The CMS solution FirePig provided include an Intranet and
Clientnet for HNA that could only be accessed by authenticated
users. To meet the disparate goals of a single sign on that took
advantage of HNA's existing technology infrastructure, we
reworked the CMS's authentication process to first authenticate via
their Active Directory, and then to compare login credentials with
the CMS's internal accounts.
