When authenticating users, ADQM verifies the identity of users and determines if they are allowed to connect to servers. ADQM uses roles to manage access rights.
The following authentication methods are supported:
LDAP — an LDAP server can be used as an external authenticator to verify ADQM user passwords or as an external directory to store information about user accounts and their access rights.
By SSL certificates — users can be authenticated by SSL certificates if SSL channel protection is enabled for ADQM.
Kerberos — Kerberos-authenticated users can access ADQM through the HTTP interface (a used client should support the SPNEGO mechanism).
