Authenticating open source cloud applications with LDAP
Featuring Nextcloud & Rocket.Chat
I work for La Sentinelle Ltd as a Systems Architect. I am passionate about Linux & OSS. I've been around the openSUSE community since 2009, organizing openSUSE installfests in Mauritius and talk at local meetups/conferences. I manage openSUSE mirrors in Mauritius and South Africa. If you'd like to sponsor a mirror in Africa, let's talk, firstname.lastname@example.org.

It is very common for businesses with small teams to use cloud services to synchronise their work, stay in touch etc. All of these can also be achieved using open source software. However, making the different open source applications to authenticate through a single mechanism is somewhat challenging.
In this presentation, I will cover the use of LDAP to authenticate cloud services like Nextcloud and Rocket.Chat.
I'll cover 389 Directory Server to provide the LDAP service.
