Mobile Apps authentication using existing enterprise userstore

Hello People,


We are considering a mobile application for the current intranet site which will be in future accessed over Internet .

All the enterprise applications will be available over the app.


We would like to leverage existing userstore and Policy Store (Both on CA Directory) for the authentication and authorization purposes.


I would like to know what are the possible solution designs to achieve this ?

Currently i am at see because as much as i know SAML is not very well supported by Mobile Apps and I don't know much about OAuth and Other protocols (to be fair i don't have much idea about authentication in Mobile Apps).I need some clarity about how to use such protocols or if they are even part of solution i have in my mind  


Can anyone help me with this and let me know what would be the best way of doing this ?


PS: I do not like the idea of using VPN tunnels to access intranet every time user wishes to access internet. I would also not like to buy additional components at this time like CA Access Gateway.(CA Access Gateway is not used in current SSO implementation).
