Portions of eDir opensource

Novell is contributing portions of the eDirectory code to the FreeRADIUS and Samba open-source projects, also under the GPL. The goal is to allow any open-source developer to tap Novell's identity management infrastructure and use eDirectory as their authentication engine, said Tim Harris, Novell's eDirectory product manager.

eWEEK.com Special Report: LinuxWorld'The code that we are contributing is specifically designed to leverage some previously undocumented APIs in Novell's existing eDirectory product in the security space. Open-source and third-party vendors have until now been unable to integrate with eDirectory and to directly leverage these APIs as they were not published,' he said."
