Yes, and if you don't specify "password-hash" in slapd.conf, ssha is
used. It is the default.
do you suggest to use salt?
ssha use salt.
Thanks a lot for your help,
have you read rfc-3062 ?
If you configure your clients to use "password exop" you should be sure
that the clients use any kind of network protection, TLS or SSL.
TinyCA is a perl based GTK-GUI which may help you to generate certs and
Until you are ready to use TLS/SSL I sugggest that you let the client
encrypt the passwords local.
But when I do ldapsearch -x it says
ldap_sasl_bind(SIMPLE): Can't contact LDAP server (-1)
In the logs of the server I can see this:
connection_get(12): got connid=1077
connection_read(12): checking for input on id=1077
TLS trace: SSL_accept:before/accept initialization
TLS: can't accept: (unknown).
connection_read(12): TLS accept failure error=-1 id=1077, closing
connection_close: conn=1077 sd=12
I created the certificates like this:
# openssl genrsa 2048 > ca-key.pem
# openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -days 1000 -key ca-key.pem > ca-cert.pem
# openssl req -newkey rsa:2048 -days 1000 -nodes -keyout server-key.pem
# openssl x509 -req -in server-req.pem -days 1000 -CA ca-cert.pem
-CAkey ca-key.pem -set_serial 01 > server-cert.pem
This on the server side, then I scp the ca-cert.pem file to the client
(and to the /etc/openldap/cacerts in the same server).
For the client I created the certificate like this:
# openssl req -newkey rsa:2048 -days 1000 -nodes -keyout client-key.pem
# openssl x509 -req -in client-req.pem -days 1000 -CA ca-cert.pem -CAkey
ca-key.pem -set_serial 01 > client-cert.pem
And then copy those 3 files to the client.
I changed the slapd.conf to have the 3 tls variables with the generated
files from the beginning and changed the configuration to connect to
the ldaps://server and marked the tls option.
Any hint about the error?
Thanks in advance.
