Authentication framework for JDNC.
I am currently researching parts of JAAS and JNDI APIs for providing a Login/Authentication infrastructure support from JDNC.
It is one of the features we are planning for the next major release :
I wanted to get a feel for what folks out there are using for authentication currently ? Active Directory, LDAP, NIS, Kerberos,
Certificates etc. If you are using Active Directory, what are you using for authentication (JAAS support for Active Directory is only readonly). LDAP seems to have fairly good support in JAAS/JNDI. If you are using LDAP authentication, what kind of mechanism are you using ?
Clear text over SSL ?
Something else ?
I would appreciate your feedback, suggestions in helping me provide a useful authentication framework for JDNC.
