LDAP / Active Directory

To authenticate a user against an LDAP source, we first connect to the LDAP server using the provided bind account. A search is then performed to find an entry with the entered username in the specified search field. If an entry is found, we then take the details returned and attempt to reconnect to the server with that account using the entered password. If this is accepted, the entered credentials are valid.
