Likewise Open


I saw where Ubuntu 8.04 Release Candidate was available for download, and as I was reading about what they had added to the distribution, I came across Likewise Open (something new for me). Likewise Open enables Linux, Mac, and Unix authentication on a Microsoft network using Active Directory credentials.

Likewise Open supports 110 Unix, Linux, and Mac platforms, enforces the same password policies for non-Windows users as for Windows users, and users can access any kerberized services.

Likewise Open is an open source community project sponsored by Likewise Software.
