Title says it all :)
At the moment I have an ldap server which linux, jira, bamboo and fisheye authenticate against. I understand that I can stick crowd in the middle for jira, bamboo and fisheye, but I can't seem to find any information on configuring the linux boxen to authenticate against crowd.

So, is there a native PAM connector for crowd *or* can I get crowd to act as an LDAP server?

Three of us (Sam Caldwell, @Brendan Shaklovitz, and Zach Boody) recently used this problem for Atlassian ShipIt 31. What we built is a working PIP package (which we need to get up to PyPI soon) that will allow users to extend PAM to authenticate against Atlassian Crowd.
Right now this only supports user/pass authentication against Crowd, but we plan on adding SSH key support and additional meta data parameters for user accounts.
