4.1 Filr Authentication

Filr clients for mobile devices and workstations use a REST protocol for Filr authentication. Inside the protocol are the user-supplied credentials. Filr validates these against the identity source (LDAP or local).

Web access is through a Web form that lets Filr take the credentials supplied and validate them as with REST.

This is illustrated in Figure 4-1.
