The CAST dashboards have various authentication modes available for use:

  • CAST recommends using Standard LDAP because this avoids having to manually manage individual usernames and passwords via the Default authentication mode.
  • Only one mode can be active at a time
    Mode
    Description
    Notes
    Default authenticationThis mode is active by default and relies on simple username/password authentication defined in the application-security-default.xml configuration file within the web application..
    Standard LDAP

    This mode is inactive by default and allows users to authenticate with a standard LDAP server. For example:

    • Basic Active Directory domain controllers
    • Other members of the Active Directory family such as ADAM / AD LDS
    • Non-Microsoft directories such as Apache, Oracle, Novell etc.
    Info

    Note that the configuration of Standard LDAP mode requires detailed knowledge of your environment's LDAP implementation - i.e. an LDAP administrator should help with this.


    SAML

    This mode is inactive by default and allows users to authenticate via SAML.

    Info

    Note that the configuration of SAML mode requires detailed knowledge of your environment - i.e. SAML administrator should help with this.
