Communication with AD

Unanswered Question
Feb 5th, 2009


On CCM, 4.x, 5.x, 6.x and 7.x the communication between CCM and AD is safety or clear text?

If clear text, I think it, is possible to put safety in communication?



I have this problem too.

Frederick is correct 5.x we enable under Directory settings, and we still need to install certificates.

In 4.x you need to run the plugin and enable LDAP over SSL.

You use a SSL certificate on the publisher for the connection between ccm and ad to secure connection.

If you are faimiliar with certificates its pretty easy.

For CCM 5.x and up, you can enable LDAPS (LDAP over SSL) which uses encrypted communication between the publisher and the AD LDAP instance.
