    Default Chaining authentication modules

    Hi everyone,

    I want to write a custom authentication module that behaves the following way:

    1. Execute one of the Zimbra's common authentication methods
    2. If failed, execute a custom authentication

    I have taken a brief look at Zimbra's wiki (Zimbra Directory Service, section Custom Authentication - zimbraCustomAuth) which explains how to create custom authentication modules, but didn't find anything about chaining authentication modules.

    My question is: is it possible to have Zimbra chain authentication modules automatically? If yes, how can I achieve that? Otherwise, is it possible to build a custom authentication module that behaves the way described above? How can I execute other authentication mechanisms from my code?

    Thanks in advance,

    O.K., I guess there is no built-in support for chaining authentication mechanisms in Zimbra.

    Therefore, I'll have to implement the chaining mechanism myself. Is there an easy way of instantiating a LDAP or Kerberos5 authentication handler from the "init()" method of my custom authentication module?
