Hi All

Here is what I want to do by reading all the posts on LDAP in this forum.

We currently have 4 apps (each with its own proprietary authentication & authorisation system)
Platform : REDHAT LINUX

We plan to use OPEN LDAP. This will be our centralized user management system.
Now say I create around 250 users in this OPEN LDAP. How do I map these open ldap users with the ones proprietary to the individual apps which we have.

I want to implement a Single Sign on sort of feature.

A particular user who logs in get authenticated & authorised by open LDAP & then depending upon his priviliges he/she is able to access the other individual applications.

WHere can I find some docs/tutorials which will give me info on the above


Thanks
RAHIL

Hi guys

SInce there was no reply so I thought of just ellaborating on my question.

I want to implement Single Sign On feature for my multiple apps.
These multiple apps use different technologies

app1 ) PHP(apache) & PostgreSQL
app2 ) Python(zoneapp) & ZoDB
app3 ) ASP & SQLServer 2k

All of these apps currently hav user management system in the DB

I want to centralize this user management to OpenLDAP & have a single sign on which will enable me to login in all the 3 apps the moment I log in once

Can someone post some leads where i can find help to acheive the same

Rgrds
