However many companies are using central authentication systems to increase account security.
There are many modules to integrate UliCMS withhin existing infrastructure.
There are modules for these services:
- HTTP Authentication
LDAP is a protocol for network based user account directories.
ldap_login provides LDAP integration services for UliCMS.
It's tested with OpenLDAP and ActiveDirectory but it can be configured to work with any LDAP-capable directory server.
RADIUS is a protocol which is mostly used for logins to dial-in networks.
RADIUS support for UliCMS is provided by radius_login.
IMAP is a protocol to fetch mails from an E-Mail server.
IMAP mail boxes with secure account may be used to login to UliCMS with the imap_login module.
imap_login is based on the imap_* functions of PHP which additionaly supports POP3 and the NNTP protocol.
remote_auth supports every authentication method where the username is set as an environment variable. You can use remote_auth with HTTP basic or HTTP digest authentication or single-sign-on systems.
ip_login logs in a specific user based on his client ip address.
This may be useful to provide access to UliCMS backend for specific hosts withhin an internal enterprise network.
