Is there a general discussion (somewhere on the web) on how to
1. determine what authentication the platform requires
2. can #1 be determine dynamically
3. If I know #1 will it be cross platform?
Googling reveals that there are many authenticating modules, LDAP, PAS,
RADIUS, Active Directory, PAM, and something called pluggable authentication.
But I don't see anything that tells me how to determine what the platform
requires. And what if there is no authentication required - like on a single
computer. Also if I am able to determine the authentication requirements
will the modules then be cross platform - working on Linux, Mac, and Windows?
As you guys can see I'm just starting out in the authentication world.
Thanks in advance for any help,
