My requirement is to authenticate user with os means user will provide username, password. I need to check whether this username/password combination is correct & also the user belong to particular group. I dont want to authenticate against active directory just linux os.
I google it & found JPam. But the problem is 1) its not active 2) no way to determine user belong to particular group or not.
If anyone know how to check for group using jpam or suggest some other library, it will be useful.
I am not expert on jaas but what I searched, I required to attach login module. In login module I defined how I am going to authenticate. JAAS itself doesn't provide any way to authenticate with os. I want any library just to authenticate & tell me user is in partucular group or not.
correct me if I am wrong.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
