Service-user authentication through LDAP

To create an LDAP profile to allow authentication against an existing LDAP service in your network, the following are required:

  • Existing network connection or a route to the LDAP server
  • LDAP server that is configured for Transport Layer Security (TLS) with StartTLS or LDAP over Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) (ldaps://)
Note: Encryption is required for the exchange of the authentication token.
