Hi,

I have written a program to authenticate the login user with my organisations ldap directory. I have given the code below,

public boolean authenticate() {

String userName = "username";
String password = "password";
Hashtable<String, String> env = new Hashtable<String, String>();

env.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY,
"com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory");

env.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "ldap://simple.com.au/DC=simple,DC=com,DC=au";);
env.put(Context.SECURITY_AUTHENTICATION, "Simple");
/***
* Review : Please Move the domain name to the properties file.
*/
env.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL,"userName");
env.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, password);
DirContext ctx = null;
NamingEnumeration results = null;
try {
try {
ctx = new InitialDirContext(env);

} catch (AuthenticationException authEx) {
authEx.printStackTrace();
} catch(Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}


The authentication is successful with the above code. Now I am trying to authenticate with ldaps://simple.com.au and using 'ssl' instead of 'simple'. But the authentication has failed and I am getting the below error.

javax.naming.AuthenticationNotSupportedException: ssl

Can any one please help to resolve this issue.

Thanks in advance.

It's the protocol type, not the authentication type, that you need to set to 'ssl'
