Hi,
Great works with tab2.
This project helps me to manage my users.
Actual login is based on tab db. Are you planning to use login based on ldap ?
Thank

    No we do not plan LDAP based authentication.
    My experiences with LDAP are bad.

    The most convenient authentication is based on SSL client certificates. The users do not need to type passwords and automatically authenticate based on their SSL certificates installed in their browsers that were issued by the CA of your organization.

    LDAP based authentication module would need to be inserted into lib/init.php at line#70

    If you decide to write the code, I will supply it as option.
    Please attach it here. This request will close itself if there is no response.
