LinOTP2 modules for resolving usernames

Latest Version: 2.9.3

LinOTP features a concept of UserIdResolvers. Such a module is used to convert a user object from any kind of user database to a distinct ID, that can be used by LinOTP to assign tokens to.

This package contains the base class for useridresolvers, the PasswdIdResolver (flat files), the LDAPIdResolver (OpenLDAP, AD, eDirectory) and the SQLIdResolver.

This package is used by the linotp package. For installation see the linotp package.

New classes can be written by inheriting the base class.
