I am evaluating the best means for single factor authentication for remote access (client to site or SSL VPN). The options I see are creating local usernames and password or integration with Active Directory via LDAP. What are the pros and cons of these solutions.
I feel local logins are more secure comparitavely because the user first login using local login and password and then has to use the domain credentials for accessing corporate resources. Of course, this comes at an admistrator overload and local management of user names and passwords. Do you have any opinion on this? Any acknowledgement will be highly appreciated.
