LDAP authentication of user accounts on OpenBSD has been brought up on misc@ a number of times in the past. This happens to really interest me because, I'm into directories. It's shameful and awkward, but what can I say?
In the absence of a login_ldap module for bsd_auth(3) , and upon learning that FreeRADIUS supports LDAP as a backend, I decided to explore the use of login_radius(8) as a means of authenticating user accounts on OpenBSD against a central LDAP directory.
As an added bonus, it worked. You can read "Authentication of user accounts on OpenBSD using LDAP via RADIUS" , at my other home .
