Construction of a Shared Terminal System by LDAP-Smart Card Authentication Cooperation
Source: Academy Publisher
In this paper, the authors propose the way to set up a roaming user profile without depending on Windows domain composition when building a shared terminal system for smart card users. This proposal aims at using a LDAP server as a data base of user information, and enabling each terminal user to construct his own work environment. In order to achieve this purpose, they related the user profile with the user ID extracted from smart card, and stored that profile on shared data storage. Furthermore, they built a shared file system besides the above data storage, and placed the user's work space on that file system.
