Project Description

We are looking for somebody who has extensive experience designing and setting up infrastructures where Windows clients can access Linux server resources -- network shares, web pages, client/server applications, etc. -- with single sign on simplicity.

While we currently offer some limited Active Directory support in our products, we now want to allow Windows users to access selected Linux server resources without having to input any usernames or passwords -- all while continuing to maintain security so that our servers know with certainty who the users are. Ideally, the changes that we make to our Linux authentication system will also be adaptable to work with Open LDAP and Kerberos.

This is a relatively small and self-contained project within our organization, so rather than trying to learn about all of this from scratch, we think it's just better to hire somebody on a temporary basis who knows how to do it, who has done it before many times and who can get us where we need to be quickly and efficiently. Part of your job will be transferring your knowledge to us so that by the time you are finished with this project, we understand Linux and Active Directory as well as you do.

The right candidate for this job will have the following qualifications:

Extensive experience integrating Linux with Active Directory (especially with Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2012

Significant experience integrating Linux with Open LDAP

A good understanding of Samba 3.6.x and Samba 4.x

A plus would be:

Familiarity with Ubuntu Linux
