Managing LDAP directories in SDMC
In the SDMC LDAP library, the LDAP directories in your organization that contain your users' certificates can be declared.
Certificates in X509 format contain, in addition to other information, data concerning the holder and the holder's public key. The public key is used for the encryption of confidential data, which can then be sent securely.
LDAP directories make it possible to automatically add users to the trusted address book. For more information on the trusted address book, refer to the section Managing the trusted address book from the SDS Enterprise agent.
Next, you will indicate the LDAP directories to use in your security policies, so that encryption and signature operations can be performed on users' workstations. For more information on how to use directories in your policies, refer to Configuring corporate directories.
Select the LDAP library menu on the left.
Click on Add at the top on the right.
Fill in all the fields and then add the directory. We recommend indicating an account with read-only access to the directory as logins are saved in plaintext in security policies.
The list of directories shows their names, the security policies in which they are used and the date on which changes were last made.
After you have added the LDAP directories, you can use them in your security policies, For more information, refer to the section Configuring corporate directories.
In the LDAP library menu on the left, click on a directory's icon to choose one of three actions.
