Is .localhost a valid domain scheme for SSO?

I'm trying to evaluate SSO by setting up a few Atlassian apps in a spare machine and configuring them for SSO. So far, everything seems to work. But suddenly, setting JIRA to use the SSO authenticator in seraph-config.xml results in the JIRA web server failing to respond to any request.


$ tail -f logs/jira050213111531-stderr.2013-02-06.log

I'm wondering if JIRA or other Atlassian apps have trouble using .localhost as an SSO domain scheme, or if the problem is caused by something else.

I am not sure if this is a problem with Jira or Tomcat. Either way, I take it we are trying to make distinct domains to test SSO yes? If so, a way that I know of which works is by defining a context path for each application in their server.xml file. For example, we could list our apps as follows.



Which would make each domain unique for creating Crowd SSO keys.
