Endpoints that are upgraded to use h323Identity commObjects will inherently be LDAP aware. In order for an endpoint to read the h323Identity, it needs to bind to the LDAP server that contains commObjects. Enterprise authentication credentials can be tied in at this point by requiring the endpoint to use an authenticated bind to the commObject server with the user's enterprise credentials. After a successful bind, the endpoint will know that this is a valid enterprise user and can have access to only that user's h323Identity commObjects. While this neatly ties in enterprise authentication at the endpoint, it doesn't describe how those enterprise credentials could be used by the H323 authentication exchanges.
