Cyn.in 3.x has in-built support for authenticating against most LDAP servers. This adds several advantages to the Cyn.in setup:
- Single Sign On: Your users don't have to remember and manage separate user accounts on all the systems
- Express User and Groups setup: All users are automatically imported and synchronized, you don't have to create a single user on your Cyn.in once you setup your integration. You can map groups as well as users to the LDAP directory and then assign security roles to the groups at the Space level.
- Schema mapping: Cyn.in even supports LDAP schema attribute mapping - so you can setup mapping for your user's profile fields, as appropriate.
- Read-Only integration: It is possible to setup read-only integration so there's no chance that anything or anyone will be able to modify your central directory's user information.
