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.

OpenLDAP relies on SASL for pluggable authentication mechanisms. Since SASL is extensible, new mechs should just be implemented there (which thus allows them to be used by any other applications that are also SASL-enabled, such as IMAP servers or whatever...)
