NIS Authentication?

What would be needed to get NIS authentication working? I know you can’‘t (as of yet) store a hashed password in the external DB, I’'m wondering what can be done to get Jive talking with our NIS infrastructure?

gribbler,

It should be possible to use Shaj to do this:

I’‘m assuming that the NIS auth info is available through PAM? We haven’'t done the actual integration work with Shaj yet, but it should be a pretty simple AuthProvider implementation.

Matt
