The LDAP Authentication Service is used for LDAP-based authentication in web enrollment and SCEP enrollment. During enrollment, the service can authenticate users based on their LDAP credentials (username and password).
Service description is a free-form description of the Service and its function.
Service status can be either Active or Disabled. If the service is Disabled, it does not perform its function. This option can be used to take the service temporarily out of use.
The LDAP Server Address and Port number specify the address of the directory server where the user credentials are stored.
If the LDAP query is done via a firewall with a Socks server, this server address can be given in the Socks URL field (
The Name Formats setting is used to define mappings between the username (subject name) given by the enrolling user and the actual record in the LDAP server and in the entity stored in SSH Tectia Certifier. The LDAP username format field defines the mapping to the username on the LDAP server and the Entity name format field to the subject name of the entity. The format for these strings is the same as the format for Object Name Format in certificate publishing methods. See Section LDAP Publishing Method.
To use LDAP authentication with web enrollment and/or SCEP, the Entity Mapping in the Web Enrollment Service or SCEP Service settings should be set to the correct LDAP Authentication Service.
