Previously running iChain 2.3 with Netidentity and basic authentication flags enabled in the LDAP authentication protocol
Upgraded to Access Manager 3 FCS
Novell Identity Server
Linux Access Gateway
Windows desktops running NetIdentity client


Configuring authentication classes and methods on the Novell Identity Server. Looked at all the LDAP (form and basic, secure and non secure) classes to locate an option that would allow NetIdentity support (as offered with iChain 2.2 and 2.3) but no option discovered.


Support for NetIdentity as a means of authentication to a proxy service has been removed from the shipping Access Manager code. Background authentication to a proxy service using NetIdentity no longer works.

Additional Information

The plan is to offer a kerberos method to provide single sign on from Windows desktops. This will not happen until the next release of Access Manager most likely.
