Custom integration with authentication environments

TDC can support three authentication methods:

  • Native Authentication, where the password is managed by the software and stored within the database.
  • LDAP Authentication, where the software does not manage or store the LDAP passwords at all. Instead, it is simply passed it through to LDAP in order to authenticate.
  • External Authentication such as Single Sign On (SSO), where the software does not perform any authentication, and leaves that responsibility to a local single sign on service managed by the customer.

Administrators can use MANAGE > Users to specify either:

  • Mixed Native and LDAP authentication where users may be authenticated either as native users or LDAP users.
  • External authentication where the system does not perform any authentication, leaving it up to a local Single Sign On environment.
