9.4 Using LDAP on eDirectory

All the functionality that is available in NMAS is also available in the LDAP Authentication client for SecureLogin. The LDAP client enables you to provide multilevel authentication (for example, a biometric device and a password).

When you use LDAP on eDirectory, the LDAP password can come from one of two places:

The eDirectory password takes precedence. The Simple Password exists if used in an eDirectory password does not exist.

If a user types a password that does not match the eDirectory password, LDAP attempts to match the simple password.
