    Crowd LDAP Server

    Implementation of an LDAP server that delegates authentication to an Atlassian Crowd installation using the Crowd REST API.


    This service allows your favourite SSO authentication source to be used from many legacy devices, appliances and systems.


    The LDAP implementation is based on the Apache Directory Server v1.5.7, which is distributed under the Apache v2.0 License.

    this plugin has a critical security bug! With some LDAP clients, eg Alfresco - any one who knows login name, can login with any password. There is fix: https://github.com/dwimberger/crowd-ldap-server/issues/2

    Actually the "critical security bug" had more to do with the way the LDAP clients use LDAP Authentication without any authorization. However, the problem was fixed, please see discussion and fix at the given issue link. https://github.com/dwimberger/crowd-ldap-server/issues/2

    This seems to be quite an useful plugin because it enables you to use Crowd with virtual any software. We can assume that all products do support LDAP authentication as it is the most used alternative to local accounts. Can you update the compatibility regarding the current versions of Crowd?

    Given that this is actually an add-on and not a plugin installed into Crowd, as well as the fact that it is using the REST API, compatibility should not be such a big issue. The fact that it is open source and free makes it hard to have somebody do compatibility testing against all released Confluence versions, so I will update the compatibility if and whenever I receive success reports from users on any channel :)
