Using Moodle authentication in another web service
 

I know that Moodle can use a lot of different authentication methods to check the identity of the users. But what about the other way round?

I am building a non-Moodle web server where I want to grant access to users who are already authenticated on a Moodle server we're running (using Moodle's native authentication). Is that possible, and where can I read more about it?

I think there are more than one way to address your need, among the other you may want to check Mnet, where Moodle can work as identity provider for already logged in users: http://docs.moodle.org/24/en/MNet
