Ranger Authentication using LDAP for SSL based cluster.


Are there any extra steps need to be followed for implementing Ranger Authentication with LDAP for SSL based cluster, DO we need to upload any certs. If yes can you please share the implementation steps in detail. Thanks.



Hello @Dhiraj,

You'll need to mention "ldaps://..." in the LDAP server URL. Along with that, you also need to make sure that the SSL certificate chain (containing the Root CA and intermediate CA [if any] certificates) of issuer of your LDAP server certificate are imported into the truststore of Ranger Admin server.

The truststore of Ranger Admin server, by default, could be JVM's truststore ($JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/cacerts). Or it could be a separate custom truststore.

Hope this helps !
