But , usally I look for solutions in Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies Team Blog
Single sign-on (SSO) is a method of access control that enables a user to authenticate once and gain access to the resources of multiple software systems.
As you can see from the definition the Method helps in the Authentication Level, not in the Authorization Level, which is a completely different level.
The basic occurrence, thus most common, is in one of the following:
a homogeneous IT infrastructure
a single user entity authentication scheme exists

One of the subjects which bother us is : "Why can't I find documents in my organization as fast as I find it on Google?". Well SPS2003 was the first to introduce the concept of Search as part of a Microsoft product. Since then we got the Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows Desktop Search which can but customized and plug-in.In order to take it to the next level Microsoft launched a while a go the Live.com search engine. In order to concentrate the subject a related web site was created :http://www.microsoft.com/enterprisesearch
The Search engine of the Sharepoint is one of the most used features that come with the product. I can still remeber that one of my previous project was to combine SPS2003 Search engine with CMS2002, so that the CMS2002 would have a search option. Due to the fact that MOSS2007 is among other a combination of both the option of Upgrade is one of the talked issues regradless to wether it's SPS2003 to MOSS2007 or Biztalk2004 to Biztalk2006 ( There is a relativly small amount of differences between the two, Not "R2" ) or some other application .This is true even in the .NET framework...
