Hi We are building apps with sharepoint 2013. Currently we have them setup as two web applications with two separate domain names -

  • Wep App 1 - www.webapp1.com
  • Web App 2 - www.webapp2.com

We also have ASP.net membership role provider database which we use for authentication. right now we want to implement Single Sign On for both the Web App. If i Authenticate with one web app and i try to navigate to the other web app i should not be asked to re-authenticate again.

How can i achieve this. i cannot use ADFS as we maintain a separate database with all the user info as a part of asp.net membership role provider. Can someone guide me on how this can be achieved.

Appreciate your time.
