Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version: 10.1.4.0.1 to 11.1.1.3.0 - Release: 10gR3 to 11g
Oracle Authentication Services for Operating Systems - Version: 10.1.4.0.1 to 10.1.4.3]

Goal

What documentation exists for implementing centralized authentication of Unix accounts using OID ? This solution involves:

1. UNIX System configured to use pam_ldap as authentication (no Oracle documentation on that)
2. pam_ldap will act as a client for OID server (over LDAP v3 protocol)
3. OID server will store the user data (as described in the whitepaper listed below)
