Authentication Method: LDAP Capture Authentication

Type: Authentication Method
Requires:
Status:
Maintainer(s):


This authentication plug-in extends the standard LDAP authentication plug-in by capturing user passwords to the global $USER variable. The user password is encrypted and unlike the standard md5 hash, it can also be decrypted. This provides developers with a mechanism to capture user passwords and then forward the decrypted version on to another application.

Example Usage -

A user logs on using the LDAP capture plugin.
The user then opens up a windows share using the 'windows share web client' block.
The users credentials are automatically passed through to smbclient and the windows share is displayed.
