> Ability to utilise group information from a LDAP compatible directory

>                 Key: QPID-7116
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-7116
>             Project: Qpid
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Java Broker
>            Reporter: Keith Wall
>            Assignee: Lorenz Quack
>             Fix For: qpid-java-6.1
>         Attachments: 0001-WIP-unification.patch, 0002-WIP-LDAP-groups.patch
> The Java Broker can already authenticate users against an LDAP compatible directory.
 It should also be able to use the same information source as a source of group information
> The authentication provide needs to accept optional attributes governing where the group
information will be found:
> {{groupSearchContext}} - the base entry for the role search. If not specified, the search
base is the top-level directory context.
> {{groupSearchFilter}} - the LDAP search filter for selecting group entries.  A {0} token
within the filter will be replaced by the distinguish name of the authenticated user.
> {{groupAttributeName}} - the name of the attribute that contains the name of the role.
> After the authentication provider has successfully bound (authenticated) the user, it
should perform a second query for the groups.  It should build a {{GroupPrincipal}} for each
group to which the user belongs and return this as part of the AuthenticationResult.   If
the group search attributes are not found, the group search should be skipped.
> A future version if the LDAP Authentication Provider may offer the ability to cache the
group results for a DN period of time.  This would serve to avoid hitting the Directory several
times authentication (it already hits the Directory twice if {{bindWithoutSearch}} is false,
this will add a third).
