How do I provide basic authentication?
I've been away from programming for 10 years and now I want to build some applications again. I'm really interested in Qt and have just started learning.
Right now, I need a way of authenticate my users. Personally, I'd prefer to authenticate against an Active Directory, but I couldn't find anything related.
- What class should I use for authentication? QAuthenticator? Any tutorial available?
- Is there a way to authenticate against an LDAP server? Preferably AD.
- Is there something "out-of-the-box"?
- Shall I develop my own authentication system?
Any comments appreciated.
AFAIK, there is no standard component to do this. We've written our own code to query the AD server for user credentials.
Thank you, Andre!
Would you mind giving me some directions on how to query the AD? Just a North.
