    authenticate against underlying Linux OS

    Ralph Churchill Newbie

      I've search the forums and the web, but to no avail: is there a way to authenticate a web user against the Linux OS of the server on which JBoss is running? In other words, users log into the web application using the same username and password as they would use to log into the server itself. I would assume some sort of PAM-integration might be able to do this.

      Please note that ShadowJAAS is not a viable solution and UnixLoginModule does not do any authentication -- I've already pursued these options. Thanks.
