Enable LDAP-backend in Kerberos5

Reported by: Chris Venker <openwrt@…> Owned by: flyn
Priority: normal Milestone: Features Paradise
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: krb5 openldap Cc:


Kerberos5 and (Open)LDAP both provide interfaces to interact with each other so that configuration hasn't to be done in two places.

One possibility is to use Kerberos5 as password-storage for OpenLDAP. Another one is to use OpenLDAP as key distribution center (KDC) for Kerberos5. With the default Makefile of the krb5-package, it's not possible to use LDAP as a backend because the necessary libraries aren't generated.

By providing the switch --with-ldap, Kerberos5 could be extended by the functionality to use OpenLDAP as KDC, which would lower the administration when using the OpenWRT-router as central unit to manage acccess to the network and it's machines.
