Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSERVER-1217) Binds with referrals can be used for delegated authentication
Date Wed, 06 Aug 2008 00:56:44 GMT
Binds with referrals can be used for delegated authentication
-------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DIRSERVER-1217
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1217
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Alex Karasulu
             Fix For: 1.5.5


It's possible to perform delegated authentication by handling referral chasing in the server
on bind operations.  This could be a new external authentication mechanism.  If a bind request
using a principalDn represents a referral or does not exist but has a referral at some ancestor
in the DN then the server can delegate the authentication to the target server.  If the target
server referrenced in the ref attribute authenticates the user then ApacheDS accepts the user
as authenticated.
