Heterogeneous IT environments often contain various different domains and operating systems that need to be able to seamlessly communicate. Red Hat Enterprise Linux offers multiple ways to tightly integrate Linux domains with Active Directory (AD) on Microsoft Windows. The integration is possible on different domain objects that include users, groups, services, or systems. This guide also covers different integration scenarios, ranging from lightweight AD pass-through authentication to full-fledged Kerberos trusted realms.
In addition to this guide, you can find documentation on other features and services related to Red Hat Enterprise Linux Identity Management in the following guides:
The Linux Domain Identity, Authentication, and Policy Guide documents Red Hat Identity Management, a solution that provides a centralized and unified way to manage identity stores as well as authentication and authorization policies in a Linux-based domain.
The System-Level Authentication Guide documents different applications and services available to configure authentication on local systems, including the authconfig utility, the System Security Services Daemon (SSSD) service, the Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM) framework, Kerberos, the certmonger utility, and single sign-on (SSO) for applications.
