In the short term you can do this:
- Configure the server to use the XML accounts.
- Then modify/override the
to do the PAM check returning True or False depdning on whether
In the longer term we need to support a "pluggable" authentication
approach. That would probably involve changing the
to accept "pluggable" credentials checkers. Note that right now we do have
that method hard-coded to recognize the Kerberos checker and use that. We
just need to generalize that approach. Feel free to tackle that and send in
patches if you have time...
