I have the following configuration from an apache server. I do not know how to map this information to an applicationContext-Security.xml
Allow from all
AuthName "Use your xxxx LDAP credentials"
Require ldap-group cn=thecompanyGroup,o=thecompany,c=com </Location>
# read/write access
<Limit OPTIONS PROPFIND GET REPORT>
Require ldap-group cn=thecompanyGroup,o=thecompany,c=com
# read-only access
<Limit MKACTIVITY PROPPATCH PUT MKCOL MOVE COPY DELETE LOCK UNLOCK MERGE>
I just need to authenticate users against the LDAP server, but I quite confused, since I do not know much about them and moreover I do not have a full working example of applicationContext-security.xml from spring security 3. I have read the manual and I am still confused.
I am quite new to LDAP so the following question might sound stupid: Do I need to create/implement a class in my project in order to authenticate users? Or is it just a question of configuration the applicationContext-Security.xml and adding spring security jars.
And, what is that objectClass=* thing? Please don´t laugh…
