directory source

HI

I have a couple of questions regarding where users are stored

1. Are System and Enterprise users/passwords defined on the esource database?

2. When you define directory driver:

local = esource database?

ume = j2ee ume (local/remote)?

3. given a context, can you use the same directory driver for internal or external directory?

Thanks.

    Hi Roberto,

    1. System and Enterprise passwords are encrypted and stored in the DB.

    2. When you define directory driver:

    local =passwords.properties file in the filesystem, usernames are in plaintext but passwords have been hashed. Not secure and not supported in production.

    ume = is the Local NW Java stacks UME. This can be connected to a reference system or an LDAP to ease the use of SSO, and Integration scenarios.

    3. A directory can be duplicated and set to apply to both the external and internal users however exposing your internal LDAP to external sources is not recommended and so separate authentication mechanisms are recommended. Some differentition is advised.
