IIRC, openldap2 and supporting libpam-ldap and libnss-ldap support this.

Easy for a a once off - but its a real pain when you want to do anything
serious - which ldap *should* support. I don't believ I should be writing
an admin app for this - ldap is so damn good, there should be plenty. But
there doesnt appear to be.

: gq springs to mind, and one of my friends on IRC raves about it.

gq is an ldap admin tool, yes. But its not focused on authentication or
anything else.

If I wasn't so lazy, I'd probably start hacking on some kind of admin
tools. Beh.
