LDAP or native auth of wiki users?

Can someone tell me if mediawiki permits you to use an alternative
authentication scheme?

I would like to base wiki membership and roles for users and groups
on membership information already contained in our intranet portal.

Is this possible?

Thanks,

If this is an army site, you may wish to use SSO. See:

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Siteminder_Authentication

The siteminder plugin may need some work. I'd fix it, but I don't have a
siteminder server to test against. If you need this fixed, you may be able
to request my assistance via official channels (as I work for a Navy
command).

If you don't wish to use SSO, or can't, I recommend the LDAP plugin:

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:LDAP_Authentication

If you need any help, don't hesitate to ask. If you need involved help,
official channels will likely help.

V/r,

Thanks Sean.  This directed me to a wide range of auth topics.
