Thank you Michael, but posixAccount doesn't require the password, which makes it not suitable for authentication.
But, inetOrgPerson (as it inherits from person) allows userPassword, so this is irrelevant.
True, but it's not required (MUST). the password is optional (MAY). I will consider extending inetOrgPerson and make the password MUST.
Your mileage may vary.
