Project description

django-ldap-basic-auth
======================

Simple middleware that injects the Authorization header in the request after authenticating against a ldap server

If you use BasicAuthentication in production you must ensure that your API is only available over https. You should also ensure that your API clients will always re-request the username and password at login, and will never store those details to persistent storage.

Installation
===============
You can install django-ldap-basic-auth in 2 ways: using pip or by setup.py install


$ pip install django-ldap-basic-auth


Then modify your settings.py


INSTALLED_APPS = INSTALLED_APPS + (
'django_ldap_basic_auth',
)

AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS = ('django_ldap_basic_auth.backends.LdapBasicAuthBackend',) + AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES + (
'django_ldap_basic_auth.middleware.InjectBasicAuthMiddleware',
)

DJANGO_LDAP_BASIC_AUTH_ACTIVATED = True

If you want to store the information in a http cookie, called HTTP_AUTHORIZATION, then put in your settings.py:

DJANGO_LDAP_BASIC_AUTH_USE_COOKIES = True

You must define a django cache backend too.

Dependencies
============

* Django >= 1.4.x
* django-auth-ldap (https://pythonhosted.org/django-auth-ldap/)


TODO

* Improve tests
* Check if django-auth-ldap is installed
