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

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?
