Securing Enterprise Applications with LDAP Authentication
In a rapidly evolving application world, we need to focus on securely authenticating users and protecting data as best we can. The VCCS Enterprise Active Directory (EAD) is a complex directory with multiple groups and attributes supporting around half a million identities across twenty-three colleges plus multiple administrative units. This presentation aims to show how you can secure your applications via the LDAP protocol to VCCS EAD for user authentication for faculty, staff and students at our specific college. Topics discussed will cover how we have successfully created portals that house multiple homegrown applications on our existing Windows 2008 server, the particulars of LDAP authentication as well as a migration from Windows to Linux that further tightens security and gives expandability to the platform.
