Is LDAP authentication and authorization in MySQL possible? What are the requirements (MySQL version, third-party software etc.)? How it's organized?

use OpenDS with MySQL cluster to implement LDAP

I think this will help a bit...

You can use mysql proxy for this , as it can execute shell commands , intercept and rewrite authentication . This should get you started .

It can be downloaded from sourceforge at:


The plugin is still a Beta and works only for UNIX installations.
