How to use LDAP authentication on a FTP server (DMZ) - setup and lay out question?
Posted on 2010-08-28
I was wondering if someone could give some advise about the following.
We currently have an FTP server which does not belong to our network and is being access with local accounts.
Because business needs the FTP server has to be accessed now via the AD. In order to do that we wanted to place it on the DMZ behind our firewall and use an FTP product that will allow us to secure it (SFTP) and that is AD aware.
We are trying to understand how do we need to perform the lay out so that the AD is not exposed to internet and the users can authenticate from the internet to the FTP with their AD accounts.
I was wondering if someone could give some advise about different ways to set this up securely with a secure FTP product.
Does anyone has performed something similiar to this setup and could provide some advise?
Any suggestions about products that we could use in order to perform the setup will be also welcome (either Windows FTP or 3rd party apps)
