How to Setup Centralized Authentication of ClusterControl Users with LDAP
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

April 24, 2014 By Severalnines

ClusterControl 1.2.6 introduces integration with Active Directory and LDAP authentication. This allows users to log into ClusterControl by using their corporate credentials instead of a separate password. LDAP groups can be mapped onto ClusterControl user groups to apply roles to the entire group, so it is very convenient for larger organizations who have a centralized LDAP-compliant authentication system. This blog shows you how to configure LDAP authentication in ClusterControl, and allow users to use their …

MySQL LDAP Authentication Plugin (Clear password client plugin)
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Based on my last post MySQL LDAP Authentication Plugin, I received feedback from MySql Joro Blog by Oracle.

They told me:

Insted of writing (and having to deply) your own client plugin you probably can reuse the cleartext client side plugin, specially because it’s available in a number of mysql clients already. Check sql-common/client.c on MySQL 5.5+ for details.

This is very useful because you only need to put the plugin in server side, and …

I have the goal of authenticate MySQL users with an LDAP server, currently, employees of my company are authenticated in several services (ftp, ssh, svn) through my LDAP server, except MySQL. (As you can imagine, I need to add manually every user in MySQL, a very tedious task).

MySQL 5.5 Authentication Goodies
Employee +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL 5.5 is currently in the Release Candidate phase and making good
progress on the way to being a Generally Available release. There
are many new features that will improve performance, make service
more robust, and generally make life better for DBAs. But since
5.5.7 was released for evaluation in October, there has not been a
lot of attention given to the changes in authentication.

To greatly simplify, MySQL has a table with a list of users and a
list of hosts from which those users are allowed access. So user
'jones' and the host they connect from are checked to make sure they …

Configuring MySQL Enterprise Monitor to authenticate from LDAP
Employee +2 Vote Up -1Vote Down

In the last post, we saw how to create a test OpenLDAP server, populate it and secure it with SSL certificates. Now we are going to have a look at how to configure MySQL Enterprise Manager (MEM) to authenticate against LDAP. We will be examining a few different kinds of setup methods.

1. Using LDAP to fetch just the user password

The simplest form is to configure a user with MEM and set it to the LDAP type. The user’s role is setup in MEM during user creation time and is not fetched from LDAP. …

Setting up OpenLDAP for MySQL Enterprise Monitor
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The latest 2.2 release of MySQL Enterprise Monitor (MEM) has the ability to authenticate against LDAP. I decided to test this setup and for that, I had to create and populate an OpenLDAP server, including STARTTLS/SSL certificates. This guide was done on CentOS 5.5 but it shouldn’t be much different in other Linux/Unix distributions. First, start off by installing the packages with:

root@shell> yum install openldap openldap-clients openldap-servers

Then head to /etc/openldap where you can set you domain and the DN for the LDAP manager user. I’ve inserted some useful comments into the slapd.conf file. Lines without …

Charts from LDAP Con on LDAP access to MySQL Cluster
Employee +1 Vote Up -1Vote Down

At last year’s LDAP-Con event, Ludo from OpenDS and Howard from OpenLDAP presented on the work that they’d done on using MySQL Cluster as the scalable, real-time data store for LDAP directories (going directly to the NDB API rather than using SQL). Symas now provide their implementation (back-ndb) for OpenLDAP.

You can view the charts at http://www.mysql.com/customers/view/?id=1041
