Benchmark for OpenLDAP + Kerberos ?
I'm looking into using OpenLDAP with Kerberos for authentication. Currently
OpenLDAP 2.0.7 with password stored in LDAP in MD5 format is being used. I've
some questions in this area:
- we've some web applications that produce bursts of authentication requests at
the same time (100+ per minute). Will there any performance issue if we
migrate user authentication information to Kerberos under such loading?
- any tools to migrate passwd in MD5 to Kerberos ?
- will it be secure enough to stay with current setup instead of using Kerberos?
I'm new to Kerberos. Sorry for the newbie questions.
Thanks in advance.
