    Greetings,

    I am new to cPanel and evaluating deploying it in our enterprise. One of the requirements for this is an ability to authenticate access to the WHM via LDAP or Active Directory. I guess I am envisioning provisioning an account in cPanel, giving it a bogus password, and then hooking into the login event and checking LDAP for authentication instead (while still using cPanel for authorization).

    Is there a hook anywhere that gets called where I can call a piece of custom code to perform the LDAP authentication?

    Thanks in advance.

    Howdy,

    I'm not so sure about doing it with cPanel, but have you given Enkompass a look see? It runs authentication via AD by default. :cool:

    True... but we have some applications that don't play so well with IIS, so I imagine we will want to stay with LAMP.

    As of this point this functionality does not exist, we have been reviewing the need for this type of functionality and will be making changes accordingly.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Is there a cPanel roadmap anywhere? Is there a rough eta on how many releases down the road it may be before this functionality is available?

    Thanks again.

    We do not make our roadmap public as it is subject to change. At this point we are merely discussing features that would allow the customization of the way that authentication is handled. There are no solid plans as of this time.
