Specific test cases for authentication (logins) - need help

We have had a few in the past that were able to test and document the LDAP and Active Directory authentication methods. We are in need of someone to test these again.

Active_Directory_Integration covers the basics, if you're willing to try.

OpenID will be another set of tests to validate.

This is all in preparation for an overhaul of the authentication process - more to come soon!

Little reminder on this.

Authentication is critical to any CMS, and we would need a good set of tests for all of the authentication schemes we support.

Who can help with this? LDAP and Active Directory are the biggest problems at the moment.
Thanks!

That looks interesting - thanks, Will! I'll see if his open server is still running, but he does provide a link to OpenLDAP, which we can install for self testing.

The server seem to be still active. But we'll have to see if the setup is compatible with what we need.

Good news! I have successfully connected to the LDAP server in the post, figured out the proper connected details, and I am now in the process of debugging the sessions.

Bad news - there are some errors in the 1.3 branch and we'll need to publish a patch.

Loosely related to this, I just saw Opauth on webresourcesdepot. I don't know if it is that difficult to replicate in ImpressCMS code. Maybe a good start for someone that wants to contribute Twitter or Facebook to ImpressCMS 2.0? (hint, hint ...)
