obs-ldapd: LDAP password integration frontend


obs-ldapd is a frontend for more complete LDAP integration.

AhsayOBS's built-in LDAP integration works in the following manner: When an OBM / ACB client connects for the first time and does not exist on the server, a new account is registered if the supplied credentials validate against the configured LDAP server. This process works well but does not account for password changes on the LDAP server. obs-ldapd is implemented as a transparent reverse proxy. By hosting an obs-ldapd server, and switching DNS so that your OBM and ACB clients connect to it, the obs-ldapd server will filter login requests against the LDAP server and update passwords in AhsayOBS before passing the communication through unchanged to the upstream AhsayOBS server. This transparent reverse proxying provides full compatibility.

The software uses a high-performance, multithreaded HTTP router and proxy implementation. Tests have shown a minimal performance impact. The server can also be configured to use your existing SSL certificate for HTTPS.
