Subject RE: JNDI Authentication
Date Tue, 04 Aug 2009 12:25:54 GMT
Im sorry, I don't understand your response.

I'm writing a Login Module to auth against an active directory server
and know the authentication type is specified by:


(Which can be something like "simple", for clear text, or SASL, etc)

Presumably the JNDIRealm sets this variable and I'm wondering what it
is. In the Tomcat source code, I can see the following (,
but don't know what the "authentication" is defined as?

if (authentication != null)
            env.put(Context.SECURITY_AUTHENTICATION, authentication);

JNDIRealm is based on communicating to an LDAP server. (Which is one way

AD can communicate)
