[THREDDS #ETP-299538]: LDAP autentication to restrict acces data



Hi Kristian,

We have always used the UserDatabaseRealm (tomcat-users.xml) for our user/role 
database but I believe everything else in the "Restricting Access to Datasets 
in the TDS" page should apply for an LDAP based authentication realm. You 
should not have to add a CAS layer into the mix.

You will have to make sure you have the correct role names in your LDAP setup 
and follow the rest of the directions on the "Restricting Access to Datasets in 
the TDS" page.
