Solaris Trusted Extensions Installation and Configuration for Solaris 10 11/06 and Solaris 10 8/07 Releases

Planning for the LDAP Naming Service in Trusted Extensions

If you are not planning to install a network of labeled systems, then you can skip this section.

If you are installing a network of systems, LDAP is used by Trusted Extensions as the naming service. A populated Sun JavaTM System Directory Server (LDAP server) is required when you configure a network of systems. If your site has an existing LDAP server, you can populate the server with Trusted Extensions databases. To access the server, you set up an LDAP proxy on a Trusted Extensions system.

If your site does not have an existing LDAP server, you then plan to create an LDAP server on a system that is running Trusted Extensions software. The procedures are described in Chapter 5, Configuring LDAP for Trusted Extensions (Tasks).
