New Question: Windows Authentication on AD



A new question has been asked in "Plugins" by nobi:
Hi all,

I have a question concerning the authentication plugin interface in MariaDB. 
We would use MariaDB on a Windows OS and want to authenticate the users against Active Directory. Additionally the users, who have logged in to Windows, should be able to connect from client programs to the server based on the token information in their environment without specifying an additional password (Single-Sign-On functionallity). 

MySQL sells this function in the commercial MySQL Enterprise version http://www.mysql.com/products/enterprise/security.html

I have seen articles about authentication with PAM in the linux environment but found nothing about authentication issues in Windows world.

Does there exist something that can be used?

Best regards,
