Novell Account Management SDK

Novell Account Management (NAM) uses Novell Directory Services® user IDs and passwords to seamlessly provide a common authentication system that eliminates the need for password synchronization.

Account Management SDK provides C functions and an ActiveX* control to use standard eDirectory® authentication routines instead of building user ID/password tables into each application. The NAM SDK also provides access to other information stored in eDirectory. For example, it provides access to information like effective rights and security equivalence for authentication purposes. For Webmasters, it provides information such as a user's home directory. For applications such as e-mail list builders, it provides Group Membership information.

Novell Account Management enables your applications to make use of the eDirectory constructs that you already have in place.
