Password protecting subs and third party apps


Been trying to figure this one out for a while. We’ve got a top level domain with Joomla installed and a subdomain with phpBB3 installed. We would like to be able to have one set of passwords and login to manage access to various portions of the domain and subdomain as well as additional other possible subdomains. Users would need to be flagged as able to just read, post, or administrate each of the various areas of the site. Subs, for instance, would probably have a different Joomla, phpBB or WordPress installation to keep the content separate and distinct.

What is the best way to set up the site so we can do this? Would also be great if we could make each area have the same general look and feel so it looks like a cohesive site instead of a completely different site (based on the various different templates).

Thanks for your help!!!
