Authentication and Identity management are just one giant shit fuck.
Ldap, PAM, OAuth and what not.
Each of them with it's own caveats.

Ldap, supposedly being the most widely used, isn't even an actual Identity management or authentication service, but just a DB misused as one.

The best part is, that if you want to selfhost some apps, you're pretty much forced to host one of these abominations too.
At least if you don't want to manage each service account's separately.
