This is more specific to Tomcat than Hudson but as i did my specific configuration for Hudson i think it can help someone here
There are 5 existing realms for Tomcat 6:
See Tomcat documentation here for more information.
For my company i need to have an LDAP authentication and an hudson authorization management.
The result is LdapJDBCRealm (LdapJdbcRealm.java,LdapJdbcRealm.class). This is only a deal with overriding some methods.
Once you do that, Hudson should authenticate users against LDAP server and get their authorization using your local database.
