[SOLVED]Secure ldap possible or not ??


Post by eago » 13 Oct 2014 17:44


(I speak a little english so i will try to explain my problem with my words!!)

Problem : I try to configure nas4free to connect to freebsd 10 secure ldap server (more generally : secure ldap server)!!

What I'have done : I have already linked my nas4free (Shigawire révision 972) to Ubuntu 14.04LTS unsecure ldap server, and it work: in ssh on my nas4free, commands line getent passwd and getent group give me ldap users and groups!!

When i try to connect my nas4free to freebsd 10 secure ldap server, i add two auxiliary parameters in Access -> LDAP :

Code: Select all

ssl start_tls

Code: Select all

tls_cacert /var/etc/ssl/mycerts/cert.crt
I have copied my certificate cert.crt in /var/etc/ssl/mycerts on nas4free.

I don't know if i need to add modifications in /etc/pam.d/... files.
ldap.conf file (/var/etc/ldap.conf) seem to be file which is filed when i configure ldap in GUI so i don't touch it.

Maybe connection between nas4free and secure ldap server is not possible or very hard to achieve?! If someone know about it or have configure it successfully, i need help or confirmation that this features can't be done.

Thank you.

Maybe you can use some info from it :

I have not found interesting informations for my case Jandegr but thank you.

It's amazing, i can't found tutorial on web which explain how to configure features on nas4free, i find always things about freenas.
There are very few documentation on nas4free website. In my opinion, it's not good for nas4free.

We got LDAPS to work with the following setup on NAS4Free Embedded. This assumes that you have signed your certificate by a trusted authority that is in the ca_root_nss package (as most are).

[System \ Advanced \ Command scripts ]
sudo pkg install ca_root_nss
mkdir -p /usr/local/etc/openldap
cp /cf/conf/openldap-client/ldap.conf /usr/local/etc/openldap/
sed -i -e 's:dc=yourdomain,dc=com?one:dc=yourdomain,dc=com:' /var/etc/ldap.conf

BASE dc=yourdomain,dc=com
URI ldaps://
TLS_CACERT /etc/ssl/cert.pem

In the menu Access \ LDAP, we configured LDAPS accordingly with the following auxiliary parameters:
ldap_version 3
timelimit 30
bind_timelimit 30
bind_policy soft
pam_ldap_attribute uid
tls_cacert /etc/ssl/cert.pem
tls_reqcert demand
