(Requirement) Authentication services should be compatible with existing infrastructure and applications
Many applications will need to be adapted to work with the authentication and authorization services provided. Ideally, the services chosen will be compatible with existing systems and support those systems through standard protocols. Applications will need to commonly connect to, for example, web applications using HTTP Basic Authentication for Apache and JAAS for servlets like Tomcat. In addition, some applications may want to connect via PAM and similar security mechanisms. Some identity services, such as LDAP, are commonly supported in these scenarios.
** Software in common use at Member Nodes and as clients should be able to easily utilize the authentication and authorization services with minimal configuration
