OpenLDAP is an open-source implementation of the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) for managing and accessing directory services. It provides a centralized database for storing and managing information about users, groups, and other directory objects.
Step 1: Update the System
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
Step 2: Install OpenLDAP
sudo apt install slapd ldap-utils
Step 3: Configure slapd
The installation process will prompt you to configure slapd. You will need to provide a few details such as the organization name, the administrator password, and the database backend.
sudo dpkg-reconfigure slapd
Step 4: Test the Installation
You can test the installation by searching for the root DSE (Directory Server Entry) using the ldapsearch command.
ldapsearch -x -b "" -s base "(objectclass=*)"
Step 5: Secure OpenLDAP
By default, OpenLDAP does not enforce any security. To secure OpenLDAP, you can enable SSL/TLS encryption and configure access control rules.
OpenLDAP is a powerful tool for managing directory services. By following the above steps, you can install and set up OpenLDAP on your Ubuntu 18.04 system.
