Subject Automatic Authentication
Date Thu, 25 Sep 2008 13:04:02 GMT
Hi,
 
We are comparing automatic authentication procedures with Active Directory and Apache Directory
Server.
 
With Active Directory;
Automatic authentication is simple; you define a user with a "logonname" and use this logonname
and a password for the bind procedure, which ends up successful if these two values match
with the values stored in the server.
 
With Apache Directory Server;
You have to use the users full Distinguished Name (DN) and a password for the bind procedure.
since the user at the client machine cannot know his/her DN during the logon procedure, he/she
enters a username and a password. The JNDI bind code at the client machine first authenticates
as admininstrator to the server, searches for the user entry using the username as a filter,
if the user exists the DN is drawn to the client and used in the bind procedure with the password
the user entered before.
This is a workaround we have to use for automatic authentication.
 
Is there a way to authenticate automatically to Apache Directory Server directly with a logonname
and a password just like it is with Active Directory without having to use DN for authentication?
 
Tolga.
