[owncloud-devel] Using cas server as a backend for webdav auth

Hello Vincent
I'll try to be more specific, we use ldap backend to provide auth with the user_cas app (https://github.com/owncloud/user_cas) that use phpCAS to authenticate user via a cas server. In our webdav client (moodle) our users are authenticated by a cas server and we do not have their password in clear in the ldap server and so we cannot provide it to the webdav client for a basic auth.
Solutions are : 
we provide hash password to owncloud for a webdav authentication with ldap backend 
we provide cas ticket to owncloud for a webdav authentication to a cas server 
Regards,
Mamadou

Hi,
We need to change the backend for webdav auth to a custom backend is that possible with an hook or outside owncloud. If not, I'd like to contibute to add that feature to owncloud. I lnow sabre/dav allow to do so but we need to do it without rewriting owncloud.
Regards
Mamadou

Hi,

It should already be possible to write/provide alternative
authentication backends.
See user_external in this repo https://github.com/owncloud/apps
The authentication in question should apply to ownCloud overall, so web
UI and Webdav endpoints.

Cheers,

Vincent
