Security information

Access control Mechanism description (authentication & authorization)

  • The database is world readable but only the root user can make modifications.

How to block/ban a user

* The database is world readable. All users can be blocked/banned by stopping the service.

Network Usage

  • The slapd service running requires network access. The service can have a high network usage, due to the amount of information about the infrastructure they keep and provide.

Firewall configuration

  • Port 2170/TCP port needs to be open. The firewall configuration should allow to access this port from everywhere in the Internet. A example for IPTABLES configuration is: -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 2170 -j ACCEPT
