Hi, I don't know if this is the right place for this kind of questions, and
I'm sorry if that's not the case.
I have a work to present for school for which I need to understand the
authentication processes in
samba 4 latest versions (ie >= 4.7). More precisely, about the protocols
involved (ldap, ldaps,
kerberos, others ?), encryption types, etc.
Googling for documentation, I found a lot of informations, but many of them
are outdated, especially
concerning the general architecture of samba (now integrating most of the
services needed).
I found Andrew Bartlett thesis there and read it eagerly :
What I would like to find is something approaching, but kind of updated...
Any pointer would be welcome...
