Authenticating datasources with LDAP or Kerberos in Amazon AWS

This blog is mainly to showcase one of the community success story with Teiid and Amazon AWS. The need for our community user Ben Kibler was to provide data sources in AWS be participating in Kerberos authentication. Not only participating, he wanted to provide a consistent usage and access pattern, and a light weight integration layer  for these data sources.

He choose Teiid embedded for this purpose, and provided an extension to hook Auth services back into their corporate Active Directory.  With that his applications can participate in kerberos auth with Teiid, and then same token will be delegated to underlying data sources in Amazon AWS. The rest was provided by Teiid.

Read more about it and find the supporting code at https://developer.jboss.org/message/920818#920818

We love to here about your success stories on Teiid. Also, if something is not working for you as you expect, then come engage us in a discussion, together we can solve the issue the OSS way!

Thank You BenK.
