Recently, I deployed OpenSSO as a web single sign on service for a number of web servers, one of which was running MediaWiki. I haven’t yet written a SAML2 plugin for MediaWiki, so I am running an OpenSSO web agent for Apache, with the LDAP plugin doing auto-authentication.
After deploying the web agent, MediaWiki started parsing things incorrectly. Wiki-syntax like:
== Test ==
== Test2 ==
=== Test 3 ===
Was being corrupted, and turning into something like:

I’m a masochist, and subscribe to the entirety of Sun Microsystem’s blog feed. At least 90% of that content is completely worthless to me; however, the 10% that is worthwhile is usually really worthwhile.
This post about managing certificate trust flags in Network Security Services (NSS) databases is part of that 10%, and is the kind of thing everyone dealing with NSS should read. It is crazy that this information is missing from Mozilla’s documentation on certutil; this really makes the trust flags clear!

In part 1 of this series, I discussed basic password authentication for Active Directory (AD). In this article I will discuss enabling group restrictions and synchronization, and retrieving preferences for AD. I’ll first discuss group restrictions, then synchronization, then retrieving preferences.
Group restrictions and synchronization will require you to somewhat understand the LDAP structure that your AD environment is built upon. Don’t worry, this isn’t as scary as it sounds, and I’ll explain how to find all of the information you’ll require.
