TDGSS Library

I am being told by my teradata team that since they do not use LDAP they cannot make use of the security features of TDGSS Libarary, is this true?
Does TDGSS has any dependencies?

I read somewhere that TDGSS works for only network-attached clients and not for channel attached clients?
what is the difference between the two?
I know our team is using TD2 mechanism for authentication..does it mean anything for using or not using the tdgss library?

thanks
