LDAP Integration and Password Authentification

New Here ,
Mar 15, 2007 Mar 15, 2007

Hi,

I have got a Connect Enterprise Server up and running. Now I configured the LDAP Connection to import the User and Groups from our Windows Server 2003 Active Directory Services. Now after this import the imported useraccounts don't have an initial password.

It looks like there are three ways to go on with the password authentification which is explained in the install guide.

1. Do nothing, means I set up a Authentification Proxy to do the user/password check for a Single-Sign-On
2. send an email to all users to change/set their password
3. set the password to an existing LDAP field value

It seems to me that it is not possible to check the password "realtime" (live at the login) against the real LDAP password without setting up a proxy or any other authentification instance. Or is this wrong? I don't need a Single-Sign-On, I just wan't the Users Windows Password to be also their Adobe Connect Password.

We are using another software in our company which exactly do this. You can also import the user account (external users) so you must not create it manualy. Now, when you login, the software check if your useraccount exists in the LDAP, and when this check is true the password will be chekced too. Otherwise the useraccount will be checked against the user and password entries in the local database (internal users). If these checks fail the user is a guest or the login will be rejected.

Is it possible to configure the Adobe Connect Server as well?

Thx

Hi John,

There is no way Connect can retreive your user's AD passwords. In your case the best would probably be to set up NTLM authentication. If a user is authenticated on your AD and the account has been imported in the Connect database, the user get automatically logged in. Then you only need to set passwords for users who need a Connect account but have no AD account.

An other solution is HTTP header authentication, but in this case you need your own authentication mechanism.

Actually, talk to your Adobe rep about a BSA that will authenticate users real-time against an LDAP. I'm not over-familiar with it, but I know it exists.

Hi rbschuv,

I think the problem will be, that you must use IE to use NTLM authentifivation but nearly 80% of my company is using Firefox instead, because we have no "restrictions" that the users have to use IE. So this authentification method would only work for little part of our users.

I think the real-time AD or LDAP authentification is no problem that a developer could not resolve, but actually there was no need for this type of authentification like this, I think. Perhaps an official feature request will work ;-)

I'll wait until monday and speak to my Adobe responsible person, perhaps he knows something about BSA

Thx.

Thanks for your reply.

I found a homepage of a company named Intesolv, here the link:
http://www.intesolv.com/solutions/cp/connect/ConnectServices.asp#LDAP

Perhaps the part "Real-time User Authentication with your Active Directory or other LDAP." is what you mean *T*?

Could you be please more detailed? What is BSA? And do you have any web links i can read about it?

Thx in advance

rbschuv - We have used NTLM authentication for the past year or so and our biggest problem with it is authentication doesn't always work - users are frequently prompted to login into Breeze. This causes many problems.

The work arounds we use are: 1. have them close all their browser windows and try again, or 2. reset their password via the "forgot you password" link, so they can login via the Breeze login screen.

Has anyone seen or heard of this issue? Is there a fix?

Thanks!

Hi UseBreeze,

We have the same problem here. Sometimes NTLM doesn't work and we need to restart the browser. We want to avoid having users to set local passwords because it is one more password to manage which is not in sync with th AD one and they get confused . I actually took out the link "forgot your password" on the login page.

The solution John Shaft talks about seems to be the solution. I'll investigate it.

Hello together,

I think I've got a solution for my Real-Time-LDAP-Password-Check. T was right there is a BSA package, which exectly do this but it is not available through the website or any download.

For this you don't need a NTLM Server running or a reverse proxy for user authentication. It simply checks over the LDAP port to your LDAP server and
returns if the login is granted through the LDAP password ior not.

Yesterday I spoke to a Breeze dev. and he sent me these scripts. He said they will be already implemented into the next Breeze version but will also work with Breeze 6.

When some is interested in this solution please send me pm with your email adress and I will send the zip file to you.

Regards,
Andreas

Anyone have the LDAP Authenticator BSA, or know where I can download it? Thanks.

Breeze Solutions Accelerators are sample code and documentation to help you integrate Breeze functionality with your directory services, intranet applications, and portal pages using standards such as such as XML, ColdFusion, .NET, and J2EE.

I cut and pasted this from Adobe's site:

In particular the file connect_ldap_authenticator.jar

The article mentions that it can be downloaded but doesn't say from where.
