CB-08: Use XSEDE SSO with campus login servers

Executive Summary: 
A campus IT administrator wants to allow XSEDE­-registered researchers to login to campus login servers (remote command shell) using their XSEDE usernames/passwords.
User Importance Summary: 
One element of the campus bridging effort is to make it easier for campus IT administrators to move their users from local to XSEDE services (and vice versa). By having local researchers use the XSEDE SSO Hub to access campus login services, it becomes trivial to tell them to also use it to access XSEDE login services. Another element of campus bridging is to encourage campus ID administrators to make use of national services in lieu of developing their own services that do the same thing. Having campus admins use the XSEDE SSO hub instead of building/operating their own reduces overall IT costs.
Target Communities and Sizes: 
Campus IT administrators who want to use XSEDE SSO for their users - (10 < N < 99) Researchers on campuses with the IT admins cited above - (100 < N < 999)
