Higher Ed Authentication

How is your Virtual Infrastructure configured for authentication within your College or University? Are you using Active Directory, LDAP, NIS, or local files?

Hello,

This depends on the university I would think. I know one that uses Novell e-Directory with Secure LDAP as their mechanism. So what infrastructure is currently in use can be adapted.
