Solaris - Raise The Security Of Your LDAP Server (Solaris 8/9)


Improving Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) can be accomplished by the use of security certificates. You can configure the slapd daemon to use the certificates generated by a Certificate Authority (CA). All you need to do is add the following lines to the slapd.conf file, right before the database definitions in the file:


  • TLSCipherSuite HIGH:MEDIUM:+SSLv2
  • TLSCertificateFile /var/ssl/slapd.cert
  • TLSCertificateKeyFile /var/ssl/slapd.key
  • TLSCACertificateFile /var/ssl/rootCA.cert
