Network Users & Computers management is what I've been studying recently. The following is a placeholder-post related to info I should inspect and eventually try:

  1. What is LDAP? Here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightweight_Directory_Access_Protocol
  2. Well, I wanna try it! Here: http://www.howtoforge.com/openldap-samba-domain-controller-ubuntu7.10
  3. Other clues? Here: http://islandlinux.org/howto/installing-samba-openldap-ubuntu#install_samba
  4. What about security? Here: http://islandlinux.org/howto/installing-secure-ldap-openldap-ssl-ubuntu-using-self-signed-certificate
  5. A self signed Cert is crap! I want mine. Two Options:
    1. e-mail cert from thawte: http://www.thawte.com/secure-email/personal-email-certificates/index.html
    2. better, a free SSL cert for mine server[ITA]: http://www.gpaterno.com/notariato/ca-cert/
  6. OK, so what is kerberos? Here: http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protocollo_Kerberos
  7. Is it useful? I mean WTF? Yes, Use Kerberos for Authentication, LDAP for the DB and NFSv4 for the files (great info): http://www-theorie.physik.unizh.ch/~dpotter/howto/kerberos
  8. Other info source[ITA]: http://www.gpaterno.com/pubblicazioni/single-sign-on-con-kerberos-e-ldap/
  9. Single Sign ON? Read on: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single_sign-on
  10. Clarification of Windows Users Profiles: http://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba_&_Windows_Profiles
  11. An interesting book (I'm gonna buy it?): http://www.winlinanswers.com/book/resources.php
  12. Other Kerberos + LDAP info: http://www.samag.com/documents/s=9494/sam0502a/0502a.htm
