Hi

What is the difference between LDAPS (ldap over SSL) vs Kerberos+LDAP?
When should we use one solution over the other?

Thanks
Jamie

LDAPS is secure Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, so you can lookup objects and attributes from a directory system. There is no authentication involved.
Kerbeos and LDAP is that your need to authenticate using the Kerberos system (used mainly by Windows' Active Directory) and ability to lookup objects and attributes using LDAP.

I see. So I would have to support Kerberos authentication with LDAP to fully support Active Directory.
LDAPS is just querying the server and try to match the password to authenticate.
