d2l basic authentication
D2L Basic Authentication
  • Default Authentication
    • Username/Password pair
    • Passwords stored encrypted in D2L
    • Commonly used for guests
    • Issue: Users now need to remember another password
ldap authentication
LDAP Authentication
  • Relatively “Standard” Integration
    • Configured through DOME
    • Still a Username/Password pair ... BUT
    • They are the same ones users are already familiar with
  • Integration utilizes existing LDAP server
    • LDAP and D2L must have a common unique field
    • Username, Student/Staff ID
    • Users created via SIS Integration recommended
    • Passwords are not stored in D2L
  • Can be used in conjunction with D2L Basic Authentication for users that don’t exist in LDAP
single sign on authentication
Single Sign-on Authentication
  • Eliminates Username/Password pair altogether
    • Another system has already authenticated the user
  • Several Key Use Cases
    • External System -> D2L
    • D2L -> External System
    • D2L site A -> D2L site B
  • Implemented via GUID Exchange
    • GUID – Globally Unique Identifier
      • Valid only for particular “destination” system
      • Valid only for the user it was generated for
      • Valid only for a limited lifetime (typically seconds)
