Course Description

LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) A protocol for accessing and managing information directories. LDAP is used as an information directory for storing objects such as users, groups, and network groups. LDAP also provides directory services that manage these objects and fulfill LDAP requests from LDAP clients.

To authenticate to Open LDAP, a service account is required. A service account can be requested from the Identity and Access Management Team via Service IT request.

The following information is required to authenticate with a service account:

BindDN: The account username (uid=its-example,ou=accounts,ou=ldap,dc=uconn,dc=edu)
Password: Password provided by the Identity and Access Management Team
LDAP URL: ldaps:// or ldap:// (with STARTTLS)
BaseDN: dc=uconn,dc=edu

The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is used to read from and write to Active Directory. By default, LDAP traffic is transmitted unsecured. You can make LDAP traffic confidential and secure by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) / Transport Layer Security (TLS) technology. You can enable LDAP over SSL (LDAPS) by installing a properly formatted certificate from either a Microsoft certification authority (CA) or a non-Microsoft CA.

Calypso support LDAP authentication, this provides access to application seamlessly as password is integrated with directory password.In today’s world maintaining more password means we are at risk of losing them or misplacing them.
LDAP solves both the purpose with integrating Calypso application access with your windows login.
Also, with LDAP integration with Calypso you will have a better vision on segregating users’ groups with controlled access.
