LDAP in WCF

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF
 
Hi, I am trying to write a WCF service based active directory authentication module for our developers. I've create a method called authenticate that takes two parameters i.e. username and password. Now, when i call this method from service client i get all the active directory groups back from the "authenticate" method.I've other methods like methodA(), methodB() and methodC() in my service. Do i need to pass user name and password for each of these methods? What I want is, clients should be able to authenticate and then grab data. They shouldn't pass username and password everytime to grab data.? How can this be done in WCF? Your help is really apreciated. Thanks in advance.

LDAP nested groups filter

  

Hi all,

In my organization we use nested groups.

For a particular usage, we have a group (let's assume that the group name "kuku"), and the names of all the nested groups under it contains "kuku" as well.

We may assume that no other group in the LDAP has "kuku" in the name.

I need to create a filter which will return all the users which belong to one of the "kuku"s group.

Obviously, using this filter will bring only the head kukus

(&(&(objectclass=user)(objectclass=person))(memberOf=CN=kuku,cn=.rest of the group DN.))

How can I use wild card to fetch all users which belong to any kuku?

For example: (&(&(objectclass=user)(objectclass=person))(memberOf=CN=.*kuku.*))

Thanks,

Asi


LDAP - Can't find server

  

Hey people,

I would like to get a persons name from their username - a common query on forums i know, but i haven't managed to get mine working yet and any help would be appreciated.

I currently have this code that I found here: http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.php?t=612655 (Thanks Chris128)

I have adapted it from VB into VB.net. The page renders but when i enter my username into the Username textBox and hit the submit button (Which calls IsUser) I just get "The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted." I have tried lots of other code but I always get this response...

If anyone can help by posting links to a tutorial or another post for code that they know works, i will give it a go.

Cheers,
Jim

help needed: Ldap User authentication using userDN and password

  

Hi

Is it possible to authenticate a user using userDN and password? If so, then tell me the syntax.So far i have tried to authenticate using username and password from my c# code using directoryentry which takes the parameters like domainname,username and password. But i need to authenticate using Userdn and password.



helped needed: ASP LDAP authentication failed in IE 8

  

I use the following code to do the user authentication through Active Directory using LDAP.

try
{
entry = new DirectoryEntry("LDAP://" + server, user_name, password);
if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(entry.Name))
{
EmployeeNetId = entry.Username.Substring(0, 3);

// Retrieve EmployeeId, and Employee Full Name
GetEmployeeId(EmployeeNetId);
}
}
catch
{
EmployeeId = -1;
}

It works for Chrome, Firefox with no problem. But with IE 8, it works sometimes, and failed on some computers. When it failed, I figured that I need to check SSL 2.0 in IE 8 Internet Options.  It's weird because in those computers that IE 8 works, SSL 2.0 is also unchecked.

Am I using some deprecated method? Or How do I specifiy the SSL version options in the LDAP connection?


LDAP Problem with .NET - Unknown error (0x80005000)

  

I am trying to create a proof of concept to show how to connect to an LDAP
server and how to search for values but I do not get anywhere. Here is what I
have so far:

Dim objEntry As DirectoryEntry
Dim objSearcher As DirectorySearcher

Try

objEntry = New DirectoryEntry("ldap://www.openldap.com/dc=OpenLDAP,dc=org",
Nothing, Nothing, AuthenticationTypes.Anonymous)

objSearcher = New DirectorySearcher(objEntry, "(ou=People)")
objSearchResult = objSearcher.FindOne()

If Not objSearchResult Is Nothing Then
'Do something
End If

Catch ex As Exception

result.Text = ex.Message & vbNewLine & ex.Source

End Try

My code fails at the line:
objSearchResult = objSearcher.FindOne()

with the unhelpfu error of Unknown error (0x80005000)

As you can see I use the www.openldap.com directory and I can connect
anonymously using the Softeerra LDAP Browser 2.5

Any help would be greatly appreciated 

PS: I know there is already a similar thread (http://forums.asp.net/thread/1028020.aspx) but none of the suggeste

Can not figure out LDAP naming convention for AD Application Mode login

  
I am trying to configure Oracle Access Manager (OAM) with AD application mode (ADAM). I am being prompted for the administrator (root DN) LDAP login for the ADAM instance, and nothing I try works. I know the administrator account in ADAM, and when I installed ADAM I used this info for the partition information, CN=accessmanager, DC=devnet, DC=local , the local admin account is devadmin, which is in the administrators container. My question is, what should the LDAP naming convention I should use for devadmin ? Oracle's example is (cn=administrator,o=company,c=us), but nothing I tried seems to allow OAM to access the ADAM installation. The obvious CN=devadmin,DC=devnet,DC=local does not work. Thanks in advance, John  

Solved: LDAP authentication: error code 49 - 80090308, comment: AcceptSecurityContext error, data 52

  
Hi, I have a problem conneting to another domain (far.away.domain). We have a two-way trust to this domain. Also I can access the DS using ADSI edit and our Administrator account (ourdomain.com). I tried several types of credentials (userid = "CN=Administrator,CN=Users,DC=ourdomain,DC=com", "Administrator @ ourdomain.com" (without blanks)...). Connecting to ourdomain.com is no problem, but to far.away.domain I can't connect, I always get the error 525 (user not found). What could be the problem? Have I to use an entry from the ForeignSecurityPrincipals CN of the far.away.domain? I also tried to connect using Softerra LDAPBrowser and a command line ldapsearch without succes and with not a better error message. But why is it not possible to use a trusted account, or is this a active directory feature and does not work with pure LDAP bindings? Best regards, Nils.

FBA users (ldap provider) don't have any user profile info when logged in.... what am I doing wrong

  
Sharepoint 2010, Claims authentication, FBA using ldap membership provider and role provider against Active Directory.  User profiles all imported just fine -- used the LDAP FBA provider hitting Active Directory to do so too.  whenever an FBA user logs in, it doesn't seem like sharepoint is picking up any user attributes.  targeted audiences don't work and MY SETTINGS is blank other than account and name.  If the same user logs in but through Active Directory, everything works just fine... targeted audiences, etc. Am I doing something wrong or can I not use the LDAP provider to authenticate to AD and also use the user profiles from Sharepoint?  GRRRRR.  All this to get around the Windows Authentication popup so I can customize a better looking logon experience.  Help?
