Enterprise Search using MOSS 2007. Authentication using SunOne LDAP

The Challenge

Indian Army required a robust Enterprise Search tool for searching a set of public facing websites and displaying the results in an intranet portal. The users could log into the intranet using their SunOne credentials.

The Solution

Microsoft Consulting Services engaged Convergent Technologies to develop the Enterprise Search platform using Sharepoint that could crawl through the list of websites and present them in a common format inside an intranet platform. The Sharpenint based tool was customised to allow users to log in using their SunOne LDAP authentication mechanism.
