Connect JIRA to system which expect SSO Edited


I get user certificate in Jira from request like below,

request.getAttribute("javax.servlet.request.X509Certificate") and I athenticate user by extracting username and then checking against ldap directory.

There is other system inside firewall, say XYZ, from which Jira wants get some details. To get the details I need to pass SSO of the user who logged into Jira because XYZ only authenticate via SSO.

Can someone please suggest java code snippet which can be used?

PS. communication is over HTTPS. I am able to call  webservices of XYZ system from Jira via my .pfx file(which contains private key), which I exported manually from my windows keystore.But this is not feasible for user who logged into Jira.


Best regards.
