>          Components: Security
>    Affects Versions: 2.0-FINAL
>         Environment: Windows 2000 SP4, JDK1.5, Apache-DS

> When trying to authenticate against an LDAP server (in this case, Apache-DS from a seperate
installation), the authentication failed because the userPassword attribute was not found.
> The attribute exists within LDAP, but the case is different (userpassword). While the
schema suggests the specified ID (userPassword) is correct, I believe  LDAP is supposedly
case-insensitive, and so ideally the attribute comparison should also be.
> The change required is to the getAttribute method within org.apache.jetspeed.security.spi.impl.ldap.LdapUserCredentialDaoImpl,
replacing the equals() method with equalsIgnoreCase().
