ClearTrust in EPiServer CMS5

In EPiServer 4.6x there was an authentication provider for ClearTrust. In CMS 5 authentication providers have been replaced by membership and role providers - but I can only find (documentation on) the SQL and Windows variants. Where are the ClearTrust classes?

    I'm guessing you will have to create your own membership and role provider. (Or google to find someone who has allready created an ClearTrust provider)

    Read more about providers here:

    Seems weird though as ClearTrust integration is one of the features listed in the sales materials for CMS5...

    We did not build any special RSA ClearTrust-support in EPiServer CMS 5. If it says so on our sites somewhere we will need to adjust this.

    When building version 5 we decided to use the standard .NET Provider model which should mostly eliminate the need to do anything special for EPiServer to get SSO to work. Very few have also asked for it so we have not put it in the product backlog. If it is a need to do a more EPiServer-specific implementation, we will though add it as a new request.

    We are sorry for the confusion around this and we will try to adjust the material on our web sites.

    We didn't have the time to wait for an official implementation so we've created one ourselves.
