LDAP Servers

FortiDeceptor supports remote authentication of administrators using LDAP servers. To use this feature, configure the server entries in FortiDeceptor for each authentication server in your network.

If you have configured LDAP support and require users to authenticate using an LDAP server, FortiDeceptor contacts the LDAP server for authentication. To authenticate with FortiDeceptor, the user enters a user name and password. FortiDeceptor sends this user name and password to the LDAP server. If the LDAP server can authenticate the user, FortiDeceptor authenticates the user. If the LDAP server cannot authenticate the user, FortiDeceptor refuses the connection.

The following options are available:

Create New
