Topic: LDAP Authentication
Well, I'm looking into a good way to integrate my Rails apps with nss/pam_ldap, and later Radius/Kerberos. Apparently you can use a MySQL backend to LDAP, but I'm not sure if that's the best idea (plus, I haven't been able to find many details on how to do this). Anyone have any other thoughts? I was thinking have the LDAP directory, then a user table with just user_id - authenticate the user, get the UID, and then look up the UID in the database. The database would contain any web-specific configurations, etc. Or is there a way to integrate ActiveRecord and LDAP that I don't know about?
