  • microHOWTO: Configure Apache to use Kerberos authentication – To configure Apache to use Kerberos authentication Kerberos is an authentication protocol that supports the concept of Single Sign-On (SSO). Having authenticated once at the start of a session, users can access network services throughout a Kerberos realm without authenticating again. For this to work it is necessary to use network protocols that are Kerberos-aware. In the case of HTTP, support for Kerberos is usually provided using the SPNEGO authentication mechanism (Simple and Protected GSS-API Negotiation). This is also known as ‘integrated authentication’ or ‘negotiate authentication’. Apache does not itself support SPNEGO, but support can be added by means of the mod_auth_kerb authentication module.

While efforts to build such plugins would require considerable scripting work, using Kunjumon framework, a a plugin that pulls input data from databases can be implemented by defining it in XML format, and, there is no need to write any code to support it. The Kunjumon framework has been tested on all the Linux platforms, and against MySQL, Postgres, Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server. However, in general, it would work with any ODBC interface configured on the Nagios host to access a data repository.
