Sage is great, but to use it for students it should be interesting to have the possibility to use ldap/ssl authentication in the notebook. I tried the patch proposed here: on a fresh install of Sage-5.7 and it works perfectly. So when can we expect to have this kind of authentication integrated in distributed Sage ? Our course, the openssl should be installed too. Best regards.

Glad it works!

Apparently it is already "in" "upstream", but not packaged for Sage yet. So whenever we upgrade sagenb, this will be there.

Upstream ? So, how long should we wait for a released one ? In the latest 5.8 it's still unavailable, as far as i know. Also it's sould be be default with ssl, as a public web server SHOULD have this security, isn'it ?

That is correct, it is not in 5.8. It's whenever the people who are doing that have time to package it and then include it. The ssl is not included because most people will use it personally on one machine, and because the license for openssl does not allow it to be distributed canonically with Sage, if I recall correctly.
