Re: Howto implement RBAC with OU's and posixGroups

Hi llg,

I fail to see how this solves my RBAC need.

Let me give an example:

Say, personA is in ou DeptA. Then, ideally personA would based on being in this ou, become member of group webserver

No, when I move personA to ou DeptB, this would mean that, on the next login, it looses it's membership to group Webserver, but now becomes member of ie group mailservers

This way, you implement security policies based on the role of a person.

How could this ideally be done with OpenLDAP?

ÂÂ persons should use inetOrgPerson and PosixAccount schemas : gidNumber gives primary group.

Then define specific branch ou=posix based on PosixGroup schema and add the uid of the person in memberUid multiple values attribute to specify secondary gid.

Hi all,

warning: openldap newbie..

is it possible to have a person put into an OU and, because of this, will become member of some group in such a way that this group shows up in linux using "id". This to implement some form of RBAC. I found GroupofMembers, but that has nothing to do with OU's. Also, it seems posixGroup and groupOfMembers objecttypes are no longer allowed together because the are both STRUCTURAL.

In AD this is possible.
