Hi there,

I'm thinking about adding some extra authentication backends to
LoginEngine. For instance, I think modules for authenticating to
LoginEngine against other SQL-schemes, LDAP, PAM, Kerberos NTLM etc.
would be a useful thing. Anyone else interested in this?

For now, I've simply tried overriding the user model, superseeding the
authentication method, doing some PAM-checking while preserving the
API. While I have verifed that my PAM-checking authenticates
correctly, LoginEngine doesn't seem to log me on as expected? It
simply tells me authentication failed, and returns the browser to the
login-form.

Is there maybe some other place that performs authentication, then the
authenticate-method? I think I have preserved the API as is, so I
don't really see how this fails?

Regards
/ Ulrik
