LDAP Account Manager (LAM) is a web frontend for managing entries (e.g. users, groups, DHCP settings) stored in an LDAP directory. LAM was designed to make LDAP management as easy as possible for the user. It abstracts from the technical details of LDAP and allows persons without technical background to manage LDAP entries. If needed, power users may still directly edit LDAP entries via the integrated LDAP browser.
MDS (Mandriva Directory Server), along with the Mandriva Management Console (MMC), is a powerful system that allows developers, system administrators, and other software vendors to manage users, groups, and their associated policies in both OpenLDAP server and Fedora Directory Server which allows multi-master replication. Its highly ergonomic interface design makes it very easy to use, and delegation of administration enables medium size organization to adopt MDS.
Viper is a system for completely automated installation and configuration of Debian GNU/Linux-based systems. It uses a modern approach with debian-installer and puppet, works with existing Debian packages, and does not require any custom patching of either install media, client, or server. The basis of the whole system is an LDAP server containing all configuration data.
jidgen is a Java-based id generator that can be used as a command line program or as a library. The idea is to make automated generation of user IDs as easy as possible by introducing a simple, straightforward template language to describe the structure of the desired IDs. jidgen uses 100% Java and is thus platform independent. Itsupports collision filters for different backends to ensure the generated ID is unique in your environment. Blacklists are available to make sure all IDs are socially acceptable. As a command line program, it can easily be accessed by scripts or directly by the user. As an embedded library, it can easily be employed in the process of automated ID generation and suggestion.
ldapuseradd is a set of utilities that aid in the management and deployment of user accounts with support for plugins to manage requirements. The LDAP user management toolset uses a highly configurable user group profile system to distinguish targeted services. It is like an LDAP-based useradd/mod/del drop-in replacement with modular features. It scales well from small businesses to ISPs, hosting providers, and universities.
