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.
