SASL PAM Authentication
I'm having trouble with the slapd authentication mechanism. I have
successfully managed to get slapd to authenticate a user through the
PLAIN mechanism authenticating against the userPassword field of a
directory entry. I have also successfully installed SASL and the
saslauthd. I have configured saslauthd to authenticate against the PAM
modules on my machine. testsaslauthd successfully authenticates against
the local shadow password database.
Now I am trying to make slapd authenticate against saslauthd (or even
directly using the SASL PAM libraries) rather than against the
userPassword field in the directory. I've tried setting the
pwcheck_method in slapd.conf to saslauthd. This did not seem to have
any effect on the authentication process or the output log information.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
