Dear all,

I am a newbie to OpenLDAP. 

I would like to know whether OpenLDAP can interface with other authentication method.  For example, finger print authentication.

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Best regards,
on linux/unix you can use PAM with openldap as one authentication method, and your biometric device as another.  you can easily configure PAM so that you can require EITHER (biometric OR openldap) for authentication, or require BOTH (biometric AND openldap) for authentication.
