Using OpenLDAP For Authentication
On a final note, this piece may grow in the future. OpenLDAP, due to it's nature, can be used for far more than simple user authentication. We will look at it for system access (ie. user logins), but it can also be used for other forms of authentication, such as with squid, among other servers and services. If you have any information to contribute, please feel free to get in contact with me. One other note: I am a complete newbie with OpenLDAP and this is really my first experience with it, so some of what I am illustrating may not be the optimal means of using OpenLDAP. I welcome all criticism and suggestions.
