Does this make sense?
So I have been using LDAP for internal (LAN/email/FTP) auth for a while
now. Works fine. Now I'm whipping up a small ecomm site. That
primarily is DB driven with all the user accounts (firs, last,
user_name, password...) in a table.
Does it make sense to pump the user data into my directory for
authentication? The only reason I can see for that is to maintain a
central point of authority. The drawback is I still need to maintain
the db table and it will take some work to get the data to move from DB
to LDAP as the web application sees fit.
Anyone else doing such a thing? I'd be curious for your input before I
make a decision.
