14:30 alexi5 hello
14:30 aldaris hi
14:32 alexi5 I am thinking of allowing my applications to authentication with a central system and was wondering if OpenDJ is sufficient or are there any benefits of using OPenAM for this
14:32 alexi5 I  don't need SSO
14:32 aldaris opendj is not about authentication
14:33 aldaris opendj is all about storing directory entries (users/groups), like a regular database
14:33 alexi5 but can applications can authenticate against by making queries (LDAP) ?
14:34 aldaris sure, they can
14:35 aldaris just send a BIND operation over an LDAP connection and you are golden
14:39 alexi5 does openAM offer any advantages given that I am not going to use any of the federated services and Single Sign on ?
14:48 aldaris OpenAM has lots of features, it really depends on what you really want to achieve
14:50 alexi5 for my purposes just  central authentication  and allow users to change their password
14:50 aldaris am comes with a selfservice interface, with dj only you would need to write your own interface for that
14:57 alexi5 hmm ok
14:57 alexi5 I guess i'll try both see how they work out
