pam_ldap module provides the means for Solaris and Linux servers and workstations to authenticate against LDAP directories, and to change their passwords in the directory.

Here are some key features of "pam ldap":

Uses the Pluggable Authentication Module API defined in OSF DCE RFC 86.0.
Can utilize transport layer security (such as SSL or TLS) to encrypt transactions between the workstation and the LDAP server and provide strongly authenticated sign-on
Support for SASL interactive authentication for strong authentication without the overhead of SSL/TLS
Shares configuration information with nss_ldap module
Supports PADL NIS/LDAP Gateway locator for finding LDAP servers
Supports Netscape and IETF password policies
Supports host- and group-based logon authorization

Requirements:

AIX 5L
FreeBSD 3.x and above
HP-UX 11i
Linux
Solaris 2.6 and above

In addition, pam_ldap requires an LDAP client library, and (optionally) a SASL library compatible with the Cyrus SASL API.
