KB-2761: RFC 2307 and Centrify DirectControl

Authentication Service ,

Applies to: All versions of Centrify DirectControl

RFC 2307 is a "Request for Comment" document from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

Among other things, it describes a proposed schema for mapping a Unix user's account information in a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory. Microsoft has used RFC 2307 to varying degrees as a basis for its own interoperability solutions, and Centrify supports Microsoft in this effort and in their implementation.

Specifically, both the Microsoft SFU and Windows Server 2003 R2 Unix attribute extensions are based on proposals outlined in RFC 2307.

DirectControl supports both the SFU and R2 schema extensions as an option for storing Unix account information within Active Directory.

You can also take advantage of DirectControl's unique ability to store Unix identity data without extending the schema.

With Centrify, you have the flexibility to choose the option that makes the most sense for your enterprise.
