Enable secure login to NiFi with no ldaps configuration

Hi All,

I want to secure login to NiFi and NiFi is installed only on one server.

There is no ldaps connectivity and connection to ldap is established with ldap://<hostname>:<port>

There is no CA and we can generate certificates on the server using OpenSSL.

With the above conditions can I secure NiFi login via certificates and login id / password?

@TimothySpann can you help me on this.

You can use this identity provider

You have some other options built in

 


User Authentication

Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
Kerberos
OpenId Connect
Apache Knox

 

If you are using AWS or another cloud provider you can lock NiFi to your IP
