How secure is LDAP
I have just signed up with this list and am new to LDAP.
Can someone throw some light as to how effective can LDAP be
in terms of "hacking prevention".
I think after LDAP is configured, the system paswords are not stored
as flat-text files [encrypted], but are maintained in LDAPs Database.
If this is true then it should be more difficult to hack passwords stored
in a DB as compared to a flat-text file.
If my above understanding is true, then LDAP would feature as a security
solution too, appart from being a very good Directory Service.
Some inputs / views / clarifications please.
