LDAP support


#1

Hello everyone,

I’d like to know if there is any plan to add LDAP support to nginx
authentification, either as a core feature, or as a module ?

There was a module posted here several months ago, but i don’t know if
it’s still compatible or maintained (it seems not).

Thank you.

PS : if there is a development roadmap available somewhere, please tell
me where to find and forgive this useless post.

I don’t know if there are plans to support LDAP directly on nginx, but I
developed a module that can be used to authenticate against it
indirectly if
you use a GNU/Linux based system.

The module is called ngx_http_auth_pam_module and is available from:

http://web.iti.upv.es/~sto/nginx/

The module implements HTTP Basic Authentication against PAM and you can
use a
PAM module to authenticate against LDAP. I’m using it on production with
this
configuration since I developed the module.

Currently the module works with the latest stable nginx version and if
anyone
uses it and finds any bugs I would be happy to fix them, as I plan to
maintain
it until a better option exists.

Thanks a lot, I’m going to give it a try and let you know.
