Google support SAML authentication.  We are using an identity manager that can provide SAML authentication to Google and interface with AD.  It can also auto-provision accounts in Google when we create them in AD.

There are 2 Google tools you'll need to use.

1. Google Apps Directory Sync - This is installed anywhere in your environment.  It will use LDAP to sync your users and directory structure.  However, because AD doesn’t store passwords in a way that the tool can read them (unless you are still using 2003) the new accounts will not have the same password as the AD account.
2. Google Apps Password Sync - This is installed on each DC in your environment (requires reboot).  It will sync password changes from AD to Google.

Basically, sync the accounts to create them, then reset the password in AD and Google will have that new password.

As for getting the browser to auto-login to Google without user intervention, I don't think that is possible at this time, but if you figure it out please share.

Hope that helps,

We're trying to muster up the ambition to get single sign-on working between Google and Windows Active Directory.  Has anyone successfully done this?  Helpful tips?
