From the sound of things, we’re not actually talking about SSO. If so, we would not be talking about the design of a login screen.
An SSO application such as Horizon would not have a login page. If the user was logged in already through corporate/organisation SSO page, nothing would appear before the standard Horizon page.
We strongly encourage our user community that if there is any web page asking for your credentials which is not the CERN standard SSO page, it is not authorised. Our SSO also supports Google/Twitter/Eduroam etc. logins. Some of these will be refused for OpenStack login so that having a twitter account alone does not get you access to CERN’s cloud resources (but this is an authorisation rather than authentication problem).
Is there really the use case for a site where there is SSO from a corporate perspective but there is not a federated login SSO capability ? I don’t have a fundamental problem with the approach but we should position it with respect to the use case which is that I login in the morning and all applications I use (cloud and all) are able to recognise that.

I have been helping with the websso effort and wanted to get some feedback.
Basically, users are presented with a login screen where they can select: credentials, default protocol, or discovery service.
If user selects credentials, it works exactly the same way it works today.
If user selects default protocol or discovery service, they can choose to be redirected to those pages.
Keep in mind that this is a prototype, early feedback will be good.
Here are the relevant patches:
I have attached the files and present them below:
Replace the dropdown with a specific link for each protocol type:
SAML and OpenID are the only real contenders at the moment, but we will not likely have so many that it will clutter up the page.
Thanks for doing this.
