Certware-to-Opplet (certware side)

A software plug-in is written specifically for CNM Certware to transfer course completion data from CNM Certware to the Software.

Certware-to-Opplet (Opplet side)

Wikiware API

A software plug-in is written specifically for CNM Wikiware to provide it with API that will allow the Software changing user rights in CNM Wikiware such as add to a group, remove from the group, etc.

OpenStack (future extension)

The Software shall be integrated with the native OpenStack Keystone authorization system of OpenStack using the output on the LDAP protocol.

Keystone is an OpenStack's Identity API. It supports LDAP, OAuth, OpenID Connect, SAML and SQL. ... [Keystone] does not actually implement any user-management functions; rather, it provides plug-in interfaces so that organizations can leverage their current authentication services.
