This guide aims to give a short and practical introduction on how to solve some common issues that users tend to experience on an everyday basis.

LDAP Authentication In Linux

Post date: August 26, 2006, 06:08 Category: Security Views: 5460 Comments
Tutorial quote: This howto will show you howto store your users in LDAP and authenticate some of the services against it. I will not show howto install particular packages, as it is distribution/system dependant. I will focus on "pure" configuration of all componenets needed to have LDAP authentication/storage of users. The howto assumes somehow, that you are migrating from a regular passwd/shadow authentication, but it is also suitable for people who do it from scratch.
