Using Novell Access Manager (NAM) with salesforce.com allows your users to use their existing LDAP credentials for single sign-on access to salesforce.com as well as any web applications protected by NAM.
This cool solution will show you how to add salesforce.com to your NAM implementation using a federated authentication via SAML 2.0. By using SAML 2.0, your users authenticate to NAM as they typically do using their existing LDAP credentials provided by your corporate directory. salesforce.com then authenticates users via SAML without the need to synchronize passwords with salesforce.com. Once configured, your users will have SSO access to all your web resources protected by NAM through either the Access Gateway or using federation protocols. Unfortunately, salesforce.com does not support federated provisioning, so you will still need create users in salesforce.com. If you would like to automatically provision, deprovision, and manage the salesforce.com identities, you can use Novell Identity Manager, but that is out of scope for this article.

I was recently asked to configure Mac Address authentication for our wireless network, on top of our existing Freeradius/eDirectory authentication mechanism. It took some tweaking to get it to work the way we wanted, but it is working. And I learned quite a bit more about Freeradius along the way.
GWAVACon 2010 was a great success! Sessions and keynotes from industry experts provided timely messages about email trends in the industry. We heard a lot about Novell’s new sync technology and there were lots of discussions about the cloud, mobility and messaging security. If you missed GWAVACon, make sure you see GWAVA at BrainShare!
I have been made aware of an issue with DLU in AD environments causing problems, especially so with new PCs in the Active Directory. Perhaps I'm not searching properly so perhaps this fix is documented elsewhere, but I found a solution. Hardly a fix, more following a convention.
If you need to know about eDirectory passwords, this tool may help.
Updated 2009-09 added a GUI interface and many more new features.
Trying to find the right balance between cost and a certain security level is something many customers have problems with. What is the return on the investment on security products?
