OpenSSH authentication with Active Directory

Hey All,

I am working on project where I need to integrate ssh authentication with Microsoft AD, so that users can login with their Windows domain user name and password.

Can someone provide few guidelines here? I would really appreciate.

PS: My SSH Server is deployed on FC3

I would think if you integrate login authentication with AD on the FC box you could add that grouopp to auth groups for SH. At least in theory.

Here are some related links to what you are looking for.

You just need to set up an kerberos client to connect to AD then have openssh look to kerberos

I would seriously look into using something newer then FC3, considering that Fedora 11 is the current release and FC3 is no longer updated.
