Authentication Services functions

These are the built-in Authentication Services functions available to use within the policy file.

Table 46: Authentication Services functions
Name Description
vas_auth_user_password Authenticate a user to Active Directory using Authentication Services.
vas_host_in_ADgrouplist Check whether selected host name and domain is a member of any group in the selected list.
vas_host_is_member Check whether selected host name and selected domain is a member of the selected group.
vas_user_get_groups Check membership of the group lists.
vas_user_in_ADgrouplist Return membership of the Active Directory group lists.
Check whether a selected user name and selected domain is a member of the selected group.

vas_auth_user_password

Syntax
int vas_auth_user_password ( string user, string pmpt, [, int tries] )
Description

The vas_auth_user_password function attempts to authenticate a user to Active Directory using the Authentication Services API. This feature is platform dependent. The feature_enabled() function indicates whether this feature is supported on a particular policy server.

Returns 1 if the user successfully authenticates; otherwise it returns 0 (zero).

Example
if (feature_enabled(FEATURE_VAS) ) { 
   if (!vas_auth_user_password(user, "AD Password:", 3)) { 
      reject “Failed to authenticate to AD”; 
   } 
}

vas_host_in_ADgrouplist

Syntax
int vas_host_in_ADgrouplist ( string hostname, string domain, list ADgrouplist [, boolean verbose] )
Description

The vas_host_in_ADgrouplist function checks if the selected host name and domain is a member of any group in the selected list. It calls vas_host_is_member for each item in the list.

Returns: -1 if host is not found in the list, otherwise it returns the index of the matched list entry.

vas_host_is_member

Syntax
int vas_host_is_member ( string hostname, string groupname [, string domain [, boolean verbose]] )
Description

The vas_host_is_member function checks whether a selected host name and selected domain is a member of the selected group. If domain is empty, it defaults to the joined domain. You can specify the group name as <domain>/<group> or <group>@<domain>.

Returns:

  • 0: host not in group
  • 1: host in group
  • -1: error
