Tired of implementing this from scratch? Got an LDAP server and just want to point at it? Well, duh.
Because Shiro offers authentication with so many different data sources, as well as Enterprise Session Management, it’s ideal for implementing single sign-on (SSO)—a desirable feature in large enterprises where users routinely log in to and use many different systems in one day. These data sources include JDBC, LDAP, Kerberos, and Microsoft® Active Directory® Directory Services (AD DS).
