Auto-refreshing existing login pages by sharing single authentication session

Single sign-on (SSO) is a property of access control of multiple related, but independent software systems. With this property a user login once and gains access to all systems without being prompted to login again at each of them.

Once users are authenticated in one protected web page, the subsequent pages on the same server can be accessed without authentication.

However, the authentication session can't be shared with the existing unauthenticated pages.

If multiple pages exist on the different tabs of the browser without authentication, users have to reopen the rest of pages after login on one page.

The refresh function or the backward function can't help.

The invention focuses on sign-in on one page to apply to all which have same sign-in pages with pop-up dialog asking user's permission. This allows user to input the credential data only once to avoid time wasting on repeating same steps for multiple pages. This idea brings the following advantages:
1. Sign-in for multiple pages automatically
2. Save time to refresh all pages
3. Recover back to all opened pages faster

Sample Scenario:

If users want to recall a plurality of web pages about a moderated community which users visited last time before browser close, each tab of the browser will be redirected to the sign on page.

Users don't want to refresh each tab manually.
