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
The NMAS Simple password
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.
