FreeRADIUS Authentication: Storing Passwords

by Dirk van der Walt | September 2011 | Beginner's Guides Networking & Telephony Open Source

In the previous article we covered the Authentication Methods used while working with FreeRADIUS. This article by Dirk van der Walt, author of FreeRADIUS Beginner's Guide, teaches methods for storing passwords and how they work. Passwords do not need to be stored in clear text and it is better to store them in a hashed format. There are, however, limitations to the kind of authentication protocols that can be used when the passwords are stored as a hash which we will explore in this article.

Framework Comparison: Backbase AJAX framework Vs Other Similar Framework (Part 1)

by Ghica van Emde Boas | December 2009 | AJAX Architecture & Analysis Web Development

This two-part article by Ghica van Emde Boas and Sergey Ilinsky, will attempt to classify the multiple solutions used today to build interactive websites and client-side applications. By doing a drill-down, we will approach the category to which we believe the Backbase AJAX framework belongs and from which the candidates for a more detailed comparison will be picked up. To make a fair comparison, we will eliminate any server-side frameworks, client-side libraries, and application frameworks—this is why you won't see GWT, JSF, jQuery, or PureMVC in the final comparison.

The libraries and frameworks mentioned in this comparison are very briefly described at the end of this article.

Also, at the end of this article (but before the framework reference overview), there is a section about integrating other frameworks with Backbase.

This article discusses the following topics in detail:

  • Toolkit classification
  • Backbase comparison to similar products
  • Techniques of integrating third-party widgets into Backbase
  • References to the mentioned libraries and frameworks
